Liz sends Glenfield letter signed by 23 MPs to Jeremy Hunt

[18/07/2017 | No comment]

I sent a letter signed by a cross-party group of 23 MPs from across the East Midlands to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens, calling on them to stop the closure of children’s heart surgery services at Glenfield Hospital.

It also put pressure on them to urgently set up a meeting between NHS England and University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust so that Glenfield’s plan to deal with even more surgical cases can be discussed.

While the consultation on NHS England’s plans closed on 17 July, I will keep fighting to save this excellent unit. Click here to read the story on my letter in the Leicester Mercury, read coverage on ITV Central here, and watch me discussing the letter on BBC East Midlands Today here.
