LABOUR Parliamentary candidate Nick Bent has said Government cuts are putting more pressure on Warrington Hospital.

Figures revealed through a Freedom of Information request found in Warrington elderly households applying for home adaptations shot from 93 applications in 2010/11 to 161 applications in 2013/14 with the number of completed adaptations falling over the same period by three per cent.

Mr Bent said a falling number of home adaptations is contributing to a record level of delayed discharges from hospitals.

He added: “Older people in Warrington deserve dignity in their old age.”

Can somebody tell this prospective MP that most people already know that the current Government is harmful and toxic to anybody requiring funding..........a Government which was effectively put into power by a numpty who backtracked on his manifesto.

Cut backs may be affecting the hospital. The trouble with Mr Bent is his party thinks money grows on trees. The NHS in Wales tells you what it would be like here if god forbid Labour gets back into power.
