The Conservatives are protecting the future of the NHS. We are fortunate in Brentwood to have the Brentwood Community Hospital which offers services and support for older patients through its frailty unit. I'd like to see more health services and consultant clinics brought to the town and I am talking to our local health trusts to encourage them to make routine heathcare, appointments and tests more accessible for older people in the town.
The Government planning an enormous investment in the NHS - £33.9bn, 20 hospital upgrades and 40 new hospitals. We will also deliver 6,000 more GPs by 2024-5 to improve services and reduce the wait for appointments.
I will work to ensure that our local services benefit from this historic investment so that we have better and more effective health provision on our doorstep.
