Community Hospitals Association Annual Conference, Leicester

I attended the CHA annual conference to speak about the importance of community hospitals and the vital role they play not only in rural areas like the South Hams but also in Torbay. We all know how much communities value the opportunity to be treated closer to home and the role that these community hospitals can play in helping to avoid admissions to larger more distant hospitals. It is important that local people and clinicians champion their cause within commissioning groups but I will also be doing what I can at Westminster to make sure that they can develop and improve services for patients. If you would like to let me know about your experience of our local hospitals please get in touch.
