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.
Here we go, again !
The Shuttle tells us that a Worcestershire Acute Trust eventis being held at ‘Simply Limitless’, in Kidderminster, on FRIDAYJanuary 31st, between 10am and noon.The trust's advertising for their events reads: “We are looking at how we can improve and modernise outpatient clinics, so appointments are more effective for patients.“This could change the way community hospitals have traditionally been used and while they will continue to do the majority of the things they currently provide, we want to work with local people to look at new or different opportunities for them to play an even bigger role in their local area.”‘Simply Limitless’ (for those of you who aren’t familiar) is the “Simply Limitless Well-Being Centre”, located in Puxton Lane (with minimal parking) so get there EARLY..(It’s one of the ancient factory sheds – down a no-through road – possibly chosen by the Trust to add a special soupcon of irony to their event).GOOGLE MAPWell, it’s been 20 years or so since we rolled-up our sleeves and resisted down-grading and closure.Let’s go tell-emthat the changes we want made are, and I quote … “.. new opportunities .. .. and a bigger role(for our hospital)in our local area.”
This will involve moving Doctors to Community Hospitals - - and NOT Out-Patient Services to already over-burdened Acute Hospitals
