Independent Community & Health Concern Caring for the Community in Wyre Forest

Welcome to the Health Concern

website

The Premier Independent political party in Wyre Forest

The Wyre Forest area of north Worcestershire is the home of independent political thought - having been represented in Parliament for two terms (ten years) by the Independent M.P. Dr. Richard Taylor M.B.E.

Representing Wyre Forest people

The party works at Wyre Forest District and local Town and Parish levels with Councillors on the Bewdley, Kidderminster and Stourport- on-Severn town councils.

Not just a ‘Single Issue’ party

As is reflected in it’s title, Independent Community and Health Concern is NOT just a ‘single issue’ grouping of independent representatives of the people; taking on-board all manner of local problems (and solving them) and local aspirations (and aiding in their delivery). It grew out of the projected closure of Kidderminster Hospital (to which so many had contributed with fund-raising). This prompted mass protest and street parades and, ultimately, the rejection of the sitting Labour MP - a junior Minister. While I.C.H.C. remains fundamentally concerned with the provision of health facilities and the delivery of all that results in ‘good health’ it is associated with concern for all aspects of a healthy community - education for all ages, support for the disabled and the elderly, transport, arts and entertainment, nature and the environment.

This is the website for Independent Community & Health Concern the premier Independent political party in Wyre Forest, North Worcestershire It’s not easy, being Independent in politics .. ask Heidi Allen, or Chuka Umunna, or Sarah Wollaston, Angela Smith, Luciana Berger or Gavin Shuker. Rather than ‘cross the House’, they have more ‘slid sideways’ and will now be sitting as ‘Independents’ rather than as ‘Change UK’. Sorry .. scratch Chuka Umunna, who has now joined the Lib Dems - the party he criticised as “.. not able to trust a word they say” just six years ago ! Good job the Lib Dems have weekly membership. But ‘Change’ has changed - they’ve had to - becoming ‘The Independent Group for Change’ - or be sued by a similarly named charity - at least until the Electoral Commission orders a further change (so that they truly live up to their name).
