MP Toby Perkins hails “cutting edge” Orthopaedic Wing at Chesterfield Royal

Labour Member of Parliament for Chesterfield, Toby Perkins, visited the new cutting edge orthopaedic wing of Chesterfield Royal Hospital during his meeting with Chief Executive Eric Morton. Mr. Perkins hailed the new project as “a top class addition to a great local hospital” and vowed to bring pressure to bear on the Coalition Government to ensure investment in the NHS continues.

Mr. Perkins met Mr. Morton to discuss the challenges facing Chesterfield Royal from Coalition Government cuts to the health budget and the new Tory blueprint promising top down reorganization.

Following the meeting Mr. Perkins said:-

“It was a pleasure to see the cutting edge, state of the art new Orthopaedic Wing at Chesterfield Royal and to meet with its Chief Executive, Eric Morton. The new development is not only an example of a fantastic example of top class NHS facilities but a flag bearer for the NHS and the incredible job it does in our community. The Coalition Government has promised not to cut front line services in the NHS and I will be monitoring their policies closely to demand they keep that promise. The Tory plans for top down re-organization will cost the taxpayer around £1.7 billion, money which could have been better spent on buildings such as this sort of improvement to frontline services”.
