Jack Lopresti MP asks for meeting with Secretary of State re Frenchay Hospita

Jack Lopresti MP has written to the Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health asking for a meeting to discuss the Independent Reconfiguration Panel's recommendations for Frenchay.

"I understand that the Independent Reconfiguration Panel has sent its report to the Secretary of State for Health, although the report is not yet in the public domain yet. I want to meet with the Secretary of State, along with Chris Skidmore MP, immediately to make sure he fully understands how important the services provided at the hospital are to me and my constituents.

"Chris Skidmore MP and I have been working with the Department of Health since 2010 and I do have to thank Jeremy Hunt for referring the changes to the Independent Reconfiguration Panel something which the previous Government refused to do. "
