More than 1,500 people have signed a petition I started calling for new hospital campuses for both Halton and neighbouring Warrington.
The current Halton Hospital site and surrounding community, within East Runcorn, are in ‘desperate need of investment’.
A third attempt to secure capital funding was recently lodged by Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, with a decision awaited.
My petition calls on Government to prioritise Halton and Warrington for major investment to create two new hospital campuses as part of its New Hospital Programme.
Thank you to everyone who has signed the petition. I will be lodging it with Secretary of State for Health Sajid Javid in the near future. To add your name to the petition, visit www.change.org/haltonhospital
