As you will likely be aware, recently a report was published which outlined potential savings made to Minor Injury Units (MIU) in Staffordshire. The Tamworth Herald have launched a petition which I back to stop any closure of the MIU at the Sir Robert Peel, here is my quote:
"I regularly meet the local leadership of the NHS and I will raise with them their proposals for minor injury services together with the Herald's petition campaign as a matter of urgency. Indeed I plan to see them later this week.
"It is critical that, despite the changes the NHS is making to the way it is organised and despite changing medical demands, we have the best services available to Tamworth residents organised to best cater for the community's needs.
"The Herald petition is very sensible and constructive and I encourage local residents to support it."
