One of the important Conservative messages in recent years is that we cannot deliver extra resources for our precious public services without a vibrant economy – not just creating jobs, but also generating tax revenue.
So, I’m delighted to report that the government is allocating £600,000 of fresh funding to St. Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey for its A&E department. St. Peter’s is widely used by local constituents so this valuable additional investment is welcome. The money will help improve the way the hospital can assess patients on arrival at A&E. The funds are being made available by the government to enable GPs to triage patients effectively, making sure they get diverted to the right level of care.
