MP welcomes frontline funding boost to Queen Elizabeth Hospital

Henry has said he very much welcomes the Government’s new investment of up to £69.7million which will deliver Diagnostic and Assessment Centres in Norwich, Great Yarmouth and King’s Lynn to aid rapid diagnosis and assessment of cancer and non-cancerous disease.

Commenting Henry said: “This new investment is very welcome news indeed. This new centre at the QEH will make a tremendous difference to my constituents, as it is going to allow everyone  who needs it to receive speedy assessments. Indeed, this new funding will make a real difference to the lives of NHS doctors, nurses, and above all, of patients.”

“Receiving world class health care is quite rightly a top priority for my constituents and this new funding will ensure local residents continue to receive the best health care possible.”

Henry went on to say: “Today’s announcement is of course very welcome news and is in addition to the new funding announced last year, where the Government pledged an extra £33.9 billion cash to the NHS by 2023-24 – the biggest cash injection in its history. Obviously, it is very good news more money is going into our local NHS. However, I will be keeping up the pressure on the Secretary of State to ensure our area receives the additional funds it needs to improve facilities at the QEH such as the roof.”
