New Health Secretary agrees to visit Harlow’s hospital

News / Tue 24th Jul 2018 pm31 03:12pm

TODAY, the new Health and Social Care Secretary, Matt Hancock, agreed to visit The Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow.

During Health Questions, Robert Halfon raised the incredible work of staff at the Princess Alexandra Hospital but explained that the deteriorating infrastructure made their day’s work so much harder.

Robert Halfon said: “I’m really pleased to hear the new Health Secretary will be visiting Harlow’s hospital. Since becoming Harlow’s MP, I have campaigned hard to protect our NHS and Health Ministers have visited regularly.

The hospital staff work so hard every single day but their work is made so much harder by the deteriorating infrastructure. With a bid for the capital funding our hospital so desperately needs in place, it’s important that the Health Secretary sees the hospital first-hand and meets staff face-to-face”

The same Health Secretary that took £32,000 in donations from a think tank that recommends privatising the NHS?

Some people have very short memories PFI Doctors Contracts Introduced Foundation Trusts Independent Sector Treatment Centres. All Labour policies.

Possibly conjuring up a plan for another hospital in the town. Definitely needed with all the new housing being built. They don't do truth Maverick, and have very selective memory failure too.

We should welcome the new minister so he can see what PAH has achieved and want can be achieved with public investment. Please don’t forget the biggest challenges remain all community,primary care and mental health services.I hope he will have the chance to meet the CCG. Health care isn’t just about a building. Let’s see if he will make a difference.

I'm a Maverick, me! I told everyone and called myself it so I must be!

Maverick is a noted christian name in Spain. Have you forgotten that already ? Ah, it's the momentum syndrome, don't like the answer, act dumb. You, jfq, were supposed to find out who Maverick Vignales is, go to your fount of all your knowledge, GOOGLE, and check. TTFN

Yeah but knowing "Maverick" is a Tory, he wouldn't want to be called something "foreign" would he. Let's debate that, Micky eh? No? Either of you will do...

Get your pals round jerryforqueen, then you can all have a mass debate. Don't make presumptions about people, it's puerile.

2018-07-29 19:39:29

Put up or shut up time. Debate or not?

2018-07-30 06:01:30

Rattled again, strange that when jerryforqueen can't think of an answer, he resorts to insults, and never ever comments on the question in hand. You're this, and he's that, is getting very boring for everyone. He almost makes the Grauniad appear interesting. So,jfq, in future, do try to keep comment in context.

2018-07-30 06:03:02

You state that you know who I am, and where I'm at,so, pop round, and we can have a good old natter in the garden.

2018-07-30 09:08:00

How am I rattled? You're the one running away from a debate.

2018-07-30 14:09:57

Anyone else noticed how jfq turns every single reply list into something completely different from the original story so he can peddle his waffle. This is a health post about the new Health Secretary coming to Harlow, yet he tries to turn it into a debate about who hates foreigners! Absolutely pathetic! Grow up!

It's perpetual monotonous droning on, about the same old out dated Corbynistas retorts. I say yes, jerryforqueen say no. You say good, he say bad, you say right, he say wrong. Trite and extremely juvenile, but, in his tiny world he actually believes in himself. As already noted, jerryforqueen, very rarely passes comment about subject matter on anything, UKM785. Not much of an offering from Central Office,don't you know. While he keeps on, so will I,not letting him get the last word really gets his juices going. Re an earlier comment, does his anti Fascist ride along with his anti Semites ?

Another Maverick! That's the trouble with you Tories, in your own bubbles, swinging from thing to thing. I know very well who you are too... Oh I'm such a weak and terrible person! I'm so easy to win an argument against! Yet you won't debate with me. What does that make you? I'll help you out here. Cowardly. Cowardly with your dog whistle homophobia, racism and sexism. Cowardly when you're hidden behind your keyboard when I know precisely who you are. Get some guts and let's debate, grandad.

2018-07-30 16:36:54

But then, what do we really expect from a constituency Tory Party that selects candidates that compare Islam to alcoholism? The gutless Peter Lamb said that then hid away like coward he is. And, as the Conservative Party in Harlow selected him AFTER he said that, can we assume that racism and Islamophobia is the policy of the local party?

2018-07-31 22:06:48

Jfq - you name a public place, get an independent chair, and I'll debate you, on any issue, no holds barred, no issue off limit. I have no issue stating I'm Mark Gough, who are you jfq? Whose really hiding behind their keyboard now?
