MP & Association Chairman welcome £3.2million extra NHS funding

Weston’s MPm John Penrosem and local Conservative Party Chairmanm Richard Nightingale have welcomed a decision by the Health Secretary Matt Hancock to give Weston over £3.2million towards new primary care services in central Weston.

It is part of almost £1billion pledged by the Government to modernise and upgrade a variety of NHS services across the country to ensure world-class care in world-class facilities post Brexit.

John said: “Leaving the EU means we will have more freedom to spend our cash on the issues people care about. For many of us here in Weston, we’ll look straight towards improving our local health services and this is a welcome first instalment.”

Cllr Nightingale said: “On the back of this, there must now be a reinvigorated effort to increase living standards and prosperity in the area, to make our town one we can all be proud of.”
