More money for the local NHS to help our GPs and hospitals do their job

The Conservatives are protecting the future of the NHS.

We are 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.
