The West Midlands Regional and Hereford and Worcester Area Health Authorities expect to issue a consultative document next month about the size, content and siting of the proposel new Bromsgrove/Redditch district general hospital. It will be sent to the Bromsgrove/Redditch Community Health Council, the Bromsgrove and Redditch District Councils, the Redditch Development Corporation and the Hereford and Worcester County Council, and we have advised that at least two months will be allowed for comment. One of the possibilities the document will mention is making detailed investigations of alternatives to the Woodrow site.
