Here is Jonathan's Press release from yesterday in support
for Hinchingbrooke Hospital, I welcome his support for
the Campaign and the Community in his efforts to
save this vauable asset


Thursday 12 October 2006

Speaking yesterday on the Conservative organised debate on the NHS,
led by Shadow Secretary of State for Health Andrew Lansley MP,
Mr Djanogly said:

"As my hon. Friend knows, hundreds of jobs have gone at
Hinchingbrooke hospital, with hundreds more likely to go,
and the hospital is now subject to a closure threat.
It seems to me that the strategic health authority's review
is in fact cover for a slash-and-burn policy conducted by
this Government. What does my hon.
Friend have to say about that?"

After the debate Mr Djanogly said
"I remain very concerned that the strategic health authority
is confusing short term cost cutting measures with long term
need to strategically review the future of the medical requirements
of people of Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire."

In addition, Mr Djanogly and Shailesh Vara,
the MP for the neighbouring Cambridgeshire constituency
have today launched an Early Day Motion in Parliament
in support of the Hinchingbrooke hospital.
