MP hits out over A&E cash
1:00pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in News
WARRINGTON North MP Helen Jones has hit out after Warrington Hospital’s A&E department missed out on extra cash this winter.
The Government has handed out sums to 53 NHS trusts from a £250m fund as part of plans to alleviate pressure on A&Es across the country.
But the town’s department has been overlooked.
Mrs Jones said: “At a time when the health secretary warns us all of a winter A&E crisis, he has made it crystal clear that the Tory-Lib Dem Government are happy to let the people of Warrington take a hit.
“Why has our hospital been given nothing whilst other hospital trusts are given as much as £12m?”
