Our NHS needs extra funding urgently. Please represent your constituents by asking health minister Jeremy Hunt and chancellor Philip Hammond for more funding.
Why is this important?
NHS bosses in Redditch are drawing up plans to cut and close local services. The plan is short on detail - but there’s a £336m funding gap and two hundred community beds are earmarked for closure across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. It looks like big changes are on the table.
Cuts and closures aren’t the only option. If the government gave the NHS the money it needs, it’d mean decisions like these could be made with patients in mind, rather than saving money.
We're calling on our MP, Karen Lumley, to stand up for the NHS in Redditch. So far, she’s spoken out for funding for one local hospital but it's a bigger problem than that.
