Saving Wells Hospital
Spent Friday morning swapping notes with my colleague Mark Fox, the PPC for Great Yarmouth. In the evening I went to Wells to speak at a public meeting to save Wells Hospital. There were more than 300 people there - amazing. I read out messages of support from Henry Bellingham and our Shadow Health Secretary Andrew Lansley. It was an inspiring evening. I really think the PCT has bitten off more than it can chew with this one. There is a lot of public anager, and rightly so. And what's more, Norman Lamb and I are singing from exactly the same hymnsheet.
