STAFFORD MP Jeremy Lefroy is taking his concerns about plans for the town's hospital to the top.
Mr Lefroy has spent days reading through recommendations made by Stafford Hospital's trust special administrators (TSA) and has written to Prime Minister David Cameron to voice his views.
With the TSA preparing to hand over its recommendations to Monitor Mr Lefroy is also planning to write to Monitor and the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt.
Monitor will spend three weeks considering the report before making their recommendations to Mr Hunt who will announce his decision at the end of February.
Mr Lefroy wants a fully functioning paediatric department and a consultant-led maternity unit.
He also says that critical care services should continue in clinical networks after Stafford joins with UHNS in Stoke.
"I've written a letter to the Prime Minister concerning the TSA report, which I read over the weekend," said Mr Lefroy.
"I had a brief, informal conversation with him on the day the report was published and he was keeping fully in touch with what was going on and was encouraging me to respond so we will see what he does."
Mr Lefroy visited the hospital's under-threat paediatric ward on Christmas Day together with the accident and emergency department and the stroke unit. Obviously morale is not great in paediatrics but they didn't let that affect them," he said.
"When you are working with children the last thing you want is to let them see you are concerned about the future.
"I particularly wanted to speak with staff on the Shugborough Ward who are understandably concerned about the future following the TSA's proposals that the paediatric assessment unit should open 14 hours a day instead of 24 and that there should no longer be paediatric in-patients.
"As usual, they were working very hard caring for the children on the ward.
"A&E has been extremely busy in recent weeks with up to 180 patients a day in the 14 hours they were operating and the stroke unit was full.
