Welcome to my website which contains information about what I have been up to both in Westminster and within the constituency.

You can also find information about local constituency surgeries that I am holding as well as how to get hold of me, should you require my assistance.

I look forward to working for my constituents over the coming years. If there is anything I can do to help you, please do get in touch.

Best wishes,

Important Message



As part of my continuing efforts to help support the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs the Alexandra Hospital, through challenging times, I have been busy helping to organise a promised public meeting at Redditch Town Hall to allow members of the public to ask questions about current plans for the Alexandra Hospital.


This will take place on 28 September and will be jointly chaired by myself and leader of Redditch Borough Council, Bill Hartnett, and attended by hospital management and senior clinicians. The meeting starts at 7pm and those wanting to attend can just turn up.

I also met newly-appointed Chair of Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, Caragh Merrick, on 9 September. Mrs Merrick, who has lived in Worcestershire, including in Redditch, for more than 30 years and is a chartered accountant by trade as well as being an experienced non-executive director, started officially in her job on 12 September, and has been appointed by NHS Improvement for a period of four years.


She spoke with me about her initial plans and aspirations for the Trust and of course about the current restructuring programme. She also committed to attending the public meeting.


I was very encouraged by Caragh and her understanding of the problems faced by the Trust in Redditch, Worcester and Kidderminster in recent years. She is very keen on more engagement with key stakeholders at all levels, including the public as well as with other organisations that help deliver healthcare services across Worcestershire, and for the benefit of all, and I commend that wholeheartedly.
