Redditch MP asks for meeting with hospital boss to discuss Alex services

Redditch Editorial 13th Sep, 2023   0

REDDITCH MP Rachel Maclean has written to the new boss of Worcestershire Acute Trust to ask for a meeting to discuss the services provided at the Alexandra Hospital.

It comes as the Acute Trust’s current Clinical Services Strategy, which sets out how hospital services are provided in Worcestershire, is launched.

Despite the major multi-million-pound investment in the Alex in recent years, Mrs Maclean believes it should also offer maternity and children’s services.

She said: “Although I, of course, welcome the major, multi-million-pound investment we’ve seen in the Alex since I was first elected, I continue to believe it should be a hospital where women can once again give birth and where children can once again receive acute medical treatment.

“I have engaged extensively with Glen Burley’s predecessors and with clinical staff on the fight to return a maternity and children’s service, but I’m keen to meet with him and managing director Stephen Collman as we work constructively together to ensure my constituents receive the first-class healthcare they deserve.

“I genuinely believe there must be an opportunity for the trust to think again about how it delivers services at the Alex.”
