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

Welcome to the Health Concern


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.

Just as our Democracy receives a severe jolt, here are some quotations which might strike a chord, here-and-now_ … “If God wanted us to vote, he’d have given us worthy candidates.” Jay Leno (American talk-show host) “Error needs the support of government .. truth can stand alone.” Thomas Jefferson   (US Founding Father & 3rd President) “Always stand on principle, even if you stand alone.” John Quincy Adams (6th US President) “There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; Buddha (480-400 BC) not going all the way, and not starting.” (Eastern spiritual leader) “Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished Plato (427-347 BC) by being governed by those who are dumber than they are.” (Greek philosopher) “An error does not become truth by reason of being multiplied.” Mohandas (Mahatra) Gandhi (1869-1948)   (Non-violent political campaigner)
In what could be considered an epoch-defining election remember that famous exhortation from “across the water” ..

“Vote early .. Vote often !”
