|12.0||Notices of Motion|
(i) Councillor L D Carter will propose the following Motion:-
This Council notes with concern the attempted hostile takeover of GKN by Melrose PLC which threatens the jobs of many high skilled manufacturing workers, their pension funds and the supply chain.
We call upon the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to use his powers under the Enterprise Act 2002 and intervene in the public interest to block any sale which is against the long term interests of the Company and its workforce.
The Motion will be seconded by Councillor S Davies.
Council notes with alarm the threat of imminent overnight closure of the A&E service at Princess Royal Hospital (PRH). It comes, apparently coincidentally, at a time when agreement from NHS England to proceed with the long-awaited consultation on Future Fit is still not forthcoming.
Council seeks urgent assurances from SaTH that the measure under consideration
1. Is not a way of pursuing the Future Fit preferred option by other means and without consultation
Council reiterates its call to the two Members of Parliament for Telford and Wrekin to lobby their Government to ensure that the PRH retains its Women and Children’s Centre and that the local NHS is sufficiently resourced and staffed to provide full acute services in this growing Borough.
The Motion will be seconded by Councillor A R H England.
This Council notes with concern the flawed consultation proposed by Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin CCGs to help determine future hospital services in Telford & Wrekin, Shropshire, and adjacent communities.
This Council also notes with concern the limited options proposed for consultation by Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin CCGs and believes that they will not offer an equitable, modern or cost effective solution to 2lst Century health provision.
Consequently, this Council resolves to urge Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin CCGs to include a third option within its consultation process based on the tried and trusted model as provided in Northumbria.
This will include the provision of a new Emergency Care Unit located between Telford and Shrewsbury, community hospitals, plus the retention of the PRH and RSH to provide planned surgery and specialisms plus the four current community hospitals across Shropshire.
The Motion will be seconded by Councillor N A Dugmore.
