Constituency OR On your behalf

The Royal College of Surgeons have written an open letter to six NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups across the West Midlands outlining their concerns about plans to impose restrictions on surgical treatments across the region, affecting more than 2 million people.

 

 

Having previously proclaimed the strength of his long term plan and how he’d insulated Britain from world events, in sharp contrast to the optimism of the Autumn Statement of only four months ago, we were told of gloom in the world economy and a series of missed targets and revised forecasts.

 

Once again he has missed his deficit reduction and debt targets.

 

 

This means that Selly Oak Constituency is now in the top 15% of constituencies for unemployment.

 

Local MP, Steve McCabe MP said:

“It is shocking that unemployment in my constituency has risen three months running now and is way above the national average. The Office for National Statistics is expected to downgrade the UK’s growth forecasts for this year, what will this mean for my constituents and jobs in our area?

 

 

In the next few months we are going to hear lots of reasons why Britain should remain or leave the EU.

 

But what do you think? Steve McCabe MP wants to hear from you!

On Wednesday 24 February, Steve McCabe MP (Birmingham Selly Oak) moved an Adjournment Debate in the House of Commons on the future of the popular Katie Road NHS Walk-in Centre in Selly Oak.

 

Steve called for the debate following the news that the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group responsible for the Urgent Care in Birmingham was beginning yet another consultation on the future of the walk-in centre.

He questioned the Minister on how much public money had been spent on these consultations and if there is a limit on how much they can waste on redundant consultations. Steve also asked for assurances that the Walk-in Centre would not be moved to the A&E Department at the QE Hospital.

                 In the House of Commons on 8 February, Greg Clark MP, the Secretary of State for Communities and local Government told MPs that the Government has agreed to provide a Transitional Grant fund of £150 million to help local authorities “with the sharpest reductions in Revenue Support Grant”– shockingly Birmingham gets nothing but wealthy Buckinghamshire is set to receive £4.6million.

 

 

The consultation ran from 16 July 2015 and closed on 8 October 2015, since then there has been silence from the Government about the results of the consultation and no indication when the results will be published.

 

Steve has tabled a Parliamentary Question demanding answers from the Government and hopes to receive an answer in the coming weeks.
