WATCH: MP tells House of Commons government has betrayed constituents

Local MP Steve McCabe MP (Birmingham Selly Oak) today blasted the Education Secretary in the House of Commons over her refusal to meet to discuss the future of Baverstock Academy.

Steve McCabe MP has joined campaigners and patients to spread awareness about the challenges dealt with by people living with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL).

Steve McCabe MP, Birmingham Selly Oak, has learnt that new figures out today show mental health patients in need of care in their local hospitals are still being sent out of the local area.

NHS data has revealed that across England there were 528 Out of Area Placements active at the end of December 2016, of which 96% were due to the lack of a local bed. In the Midlands 115 Out of Area Placements were due to no local bed and 60 patients were placed at establishments more than 60 miles from their home.

The future of Baverstock was first plunged into doubt in June last year, but the Department for Education assured the local MP that a sponsor would be found to rescue the secondary school. However, the Department for Education restarted their consultation into closure in January this year. The consultation ends tomorrow.
