Local NHS Campaign surveyPosted: April 3, 2014
18 months ago accident and emergency services and in-hospital services for children at the hospital serving Corby and East Northamptonshire were under serious threat of closure. I promised to do everything I could to stop local health cuts. That’s why I put politics aside and formed a cross party campaign with the MPs for Kettering and Wellingborough. We have worked together to ‘Save and Improve Kettering General Hospital’ and we have put a stop to the plans to downgrade A&E, maternity and children’s services. Now we are moving onto the next stage of our campaign. The population is growing locally and some of our NHS services and buildings have seen better days. I want our health services to be the best in the country and there is a lot of work to do. Our cross party campaign is pressing for:
- Extra money to help deal with the current capacity crisis in A&E
- New Urgent Care Centres
- Better access to GP services
To put pressure on the Government we need to show that we are backed by our constituents. I would be most grateful if you could fill in the survey below.
