Harriett Baldwin MP has rejoiced at news that the county council will be able to access a million pound fund to help the care system through the winter.

Worcestershire County Council has been awarded with £1,118,803 by the government, with the money destined for extra winter services, possibly even care home beds or custom care packages to better emergency care provision.

West Worcestershire MP Mrs Baldwin said: "This money will be welcome good news for the team planning its response to colder weather and the extra demand on the health system at Christmas and into January."
