Never one to miss an opportunity to bang the drum for Banbury's Horton General Hospital just 24 hours after Boris Johnson MP took over as Prime Minister, local MP Victoria Prentis wrote to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock MP, requesting future investment in the Horton.
The new Prime Minister pledged extensive upgrades to hospitals as part of his new Government’s agenda during his first speech on the steps of Downing Street. Given the threats that have faced the Horton over recent years, Victoria continues to be keen to secure investment for the hospital site.
In her letter, she said: “The staff at the Horton are world-class but the building is not meeting the needs of 21st century medicine. Many of the buildings are empty and dilapidated… I would therefore be most grateful if you could strongly consider the Horton for an upgrade under the Prime Minister’s plans.”
Additional funding will enable the Horton to flourish and continue for many decades as a thriving General Hospital with a local reputation for excellence.
