“After 20+ years of campaigning, it was announced in today’s Telegraph that our local NHS is in line to receive millions of pounds of investment!
This funding will help refurbish the older parts of St Helier and Epsom Hospitals, recruit more staff and build a brand new acute health facility for the sickest patients. This is what local residents, Lib Dem Councillors and I have so tirelessly fought for!
It appears the Government have finally listened to our demands, but the fight is far from over. This wouldn’t be the first time that a Tory Government has promised major funding for St Helier and then ended up breaking their promise.
I will be seeking cast-iron guarantees and holding them to their word – but I need your help to do that.
Help keep the pressure up, hold the Government to their promise and continue the fight for our hospital! Add your name and join our campaign: https://bit.ly/2VyAAyl“
