COUNCILLORS in Studley and Alcester have called for hospital bosses to hold a meeting with Warwickshire residents to discuss changes to services at the Alexandra Hospital.
A motion has been put before Stratford District Council at its meeting on Monday, July 23 asking for the council to note its concern seven public consultations have been held in Worcestershire about the potential loss of A&E and maternity services at the Alex, but none have been staged in Warwickshire despite the reliance of people in Studley, Alcester and Bidford on the hospital.
It urges the council to invite members of Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust to meet with councilors to explore its proposals further and ensure in future Warwickshire residents are fully consulted.
Alcester and Studley's MP Nadhim Zahawi has also written to the Trust's chief executive to ask how they are ensuring they are consulting with interested parties including those in Warwickshire.
"It's obvious the Alexandra Hospital is also a vital resource for my constituents and I want to ensure Worcestershire NHS Trust are considering the impact of their decisions on those in Warwickshire. We need to make sure people in Studley, Alcester and Bidford are not left without access to A&E and maternity services and I will be discussing this with both the Trust and my colleague the MP for Redditch."
