Health Minister Norman Lamb MP will attend a local public meeting tomorrow, to discuss NHS funding, mental health services, integrated care and more.
The meeting – which has been arranged by local Liberal Democrat MP Lynne Featherstone – will take place from 7.15pm – 8.30pm at Greig City Academy – with doors opening at 7pm.
Local residents will have the chance to raise questions with the Minister.
In Government, the Liberal Democrats have:
- Improved services across the NHS, with 6,000 more doctors, lower waiting times and cancer drugs for 30,000 people.
- Taken mental health seriously, putting £400m extra into early support.
- Introduced the first ever cap on the cost of social care, so people don’t have to sell their home to pay for their care.
The Liberal Democrats are the only party to have pledged an extra £8bn in NHS funding if they are in Government after May.
Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“Liberal Democrats believe that the NHS should always remain free at the point of delivery. In Government, Norman Lamb and his team have protected the NHS budget and put mental health on the agenda.
“I’m very much looking forward to welcoming Norman to the constituency, and hearing about the work he has done to protect the NHS, improve social care, and to ensure that mental health is on the same platform as physical health.
“The meeting is open to the public – if you’re interested in attending, please just turn up!”
