Health Infrastructure Plan Question from Stephen Hammond MP 30 September 2019

Stephen Hammond MP (Wimbledon, Independent) asks Edward Argar MP, Minister of State (Department of Health and Social Care) (Charnwood, Conservative) a question on St Helier Hospital.

I welcome my hon. Friend to his role and wish him every success. I also welcome this Government’s continuing investment in the NHS, particularly that in the Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust. Does he agree that it will provide high-quality A&E services for my residents, maintain key services at the St Helier site and confound those naysayers who said that this Government were going to shut that hospital?

My hon. Friend was a distinguished predecessor of mine in this post. He is very much missed by the Department and, I am sure, by all those working in the NHS who came into contact with him. He rightly highlights the positive news in this announcement, including for his hospital trust. This money will allow it to invest and for the hospitals to continue providing first-class services to his constituents.
