THE MP for North Shropshire is to meet with a health minister to discuss the crisis in the ambulance service.

Helen Morgan will be meeting Edward Argar, the Minister of State for Health, following a debate held in the House of Commons over Shropshire's ambulance crisis last Thursday (March 31).

Ms Morgan said she was "grateful" and called it a "major step forward".

She added: "I am grateful to the Health Minister for agreeing to meet with me and my fellow Shropshire MPs.

"This is a major step forward in our efforts to fix Shropshire’s ambulance crisis.

"I will be urging the Minister to do all he can to fix this crisis.

"Including offering up more granular data so we can understand where the delays are, and how best we can prevent them.

"I look forward to talking with him, and continuing to hold this government to account on Shropshire’s ambulance crisis and so much more."

Mr Agar said: "I am happy to meet her and her fellow Shropshire MPs, together with the ambulance trust, to discuss their collective concerns or reflections that they would like to put to me as a Minister."
