The Save the Alex Campaign are urging members of the public to keep fighting for the future of the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.

They are holding a meeting tonight to talk about how they plan to fight back.

The campaigners are unhappy at the findings of the Joint Service Review and feel that 'the deal has been done'.

They fear that The Alexandra Hospital will be downgraded with patients having no choice other than travel to Worcester Royal.

Rally over Alexandra Hospital changes takes place in Redditch

A rally and march took place in Redditch today against proposals which protesters say could see the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch closed or face losing services like A&E and maternity.

Around 500 members of the ‘Save the Alex’ campaign have marched from the Town Hall in protest.

NHS Worcestershire has published six options to save £50 million and reduce its estimated £200 million deficit, which could involve reducing services at several sites in the county.

Chairman of Save the Alex, Neil Stote, says: "a line by line review needs to be made before they make a decision."
