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

Independent Kidderminster Hospital and Health Concern is NOT just a ‘single issue’ party but a 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. The party 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.

Some Covid Facts .. and Questions

1. 9 out of 10 ICU patients are UN-VACCINATED 2. Two-thirds of new Covid hospital patients in England only tested positive AFTER being admitted - for a different condition. 3. In the two weeks to December 21, hospitals in England recorded just 563 new coronavirus inpatients 3. Why do we only have the ADMITTANCE FIGURES - which OMIT all those DISCHARGED FROM HOSPITAL - so giving the erroneous impression that the hospitals are filling-up with cases. For every 7 being admitted .. 6 patients are being discharged. A minor increase. 5. The most recent data from London (highest Omicron prevalence) reveals only 50 percent of people experienced the classic three symptoms of fever, cough, or loss of sense of smell or taste. However, most report the non-classic symptoms of a loss of appetite. And the question is .. why is it only I.H.C. questioning the status quo ? UN-VACCINATED ? UNCONVINCED ? Just ask Andrew Pugh, a fit, active 52 yr-old bin man, who spent three Christmas weeks in Intensive Care, kept alive on 75% Oxygen, while those around him died. “I thought I was being a hero - I didn’t have my vaccination. Please, people, get your vaccinations and don’t end up like me !”
It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of ANNE MACE J.P. 1938-2022 Anne represented the Wribbenhall Ward on Bewdley Town Council for over ten years as a member of I.H.C. She also served as a District Councillor on W.F.D.C. and was Mayor 2007-8. Her career in the NHS took her from Ward Sister to Matron, then Chief Nursing Officer, and Director of Quality Assurance. In “retirement” she worked with the Citizens Advice Bureau, the Royal British Legion, and the Women’s Institute. “Anne loved living in Bewdley and really made it her home” Cllr. Liz Davies
The ‘finishing touches’ are being put to EIGHT ‘Nightingale Hospitals’ .. the ‘tent-cities’ designed (?) to accept the vast influx of Omicron patients WHO WILL NO LONGER MATERIALISE as hospital admission start to fall. NHS managers (?) suggest that they can be used to free-up ward beds and be occupied by patients recovering from other problems. Excellent idea .. “let them ‘recover’ in a tent .. in Winter !” The ‘tent-cities’ are located at _ Solihull, Leicester, Bristol, Stevenage, Central London, East Kent, Leeds and Preston.
