An in-depth look at the history of the movement ...



H.M. The Queen has most graciously conferred the honour 
of being made a member of 
The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire
Dr. Richard Taylor M.B.E.
"for services to the community in Worcestershire ..
especially to Kidderminster Hospital"
in her Birthday Honours awards (2014).

The 79-year-old was the MP for Wyre Forest for two terms between 2001 and 2010 and was a former consultant at Kidderminster Hospital before that, between 1972 and 1995.

Elected on the strength of local concern about the future of that hospital which he fought to save, particularly the A&E which ultimately was downgraded, he remains passionately concerned about the future of smaller hospitals like Kidderminster and in retaining their services and financial viability.

He is life president of Independent Community and Health Concern and co-founder of national political party National Health Action, which seeks to safeguard the NHS.

Dr Taylor said of his MBE_

“It is absolutely lovely.
It is recognition that hospitals are desperately important to local people.
I have worked hard and am rather pleased to get this recognition .. I never dreamed of it.
Having been an independent MP I thought I had queered my pitch politically.
I am surprised and very pleased.”

“I think really the proudest achievement is, after two terms as an MP, that I can still walk around Kidderminster and be greeted like a friend. 
This (the MBE) is just the icing on the cake.”

All together now .. "Isn't it love-ly .. isn't it won-der-ful .. !"
