Closure of Kidderminster Ambulance Station

November 7, 2019 2:10 PM

Closure of Kidderminster Ambulance Station - Press Release from Cllr Shazu Miah LibDem Parliamentary Candidate for Wyre Forest Constituency

Cllr Shazu Miah, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Wyre Forest has reacted with horror to the announcement that Kidderminster Ambulance Station is to close before Christmas.

"This is an appalling decision which may well put lives at risk in Kidderminster. Wyre Forest Liberal Democrats were already angry at the failure of the West Midlands Ambulance Service to commit to sharing the Wyre Forest Blue Light Hub.

Now we have this horrendous situation.

Not only will this mean the wonderful staff having to travel further to their work base but it will inevitably cause delays in getting emergency ambulances to local residents. I call on Anthony Marsh, Chief Executive of the West Midlands Ambulance Service to reverse this decision in the interests of the safety of Wyre Forest residents and of everyone who also works in Wyre Forest; we deserve better than this.

I am absolutely delighted that, at this morning's meeting of Worcestershire County Council, Cllr Fran Oborski MBE, herself a member of Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority, received an assurance from the Chief Fire Officer that he would, as a matter of urgency, contact Sir Anthony Marsh, Chief Executive of West Midlands Ambulance Service and ask him once again to urgently consider stationing at least one ambulance at the new Blue Light Hub on the Stourport Rd. Kidderminster".
