On the day that the Coalition Government starts to outline its cuts programme I’m promoting a petition to demand that the Tory and Liberal Democrat government protects promised investment in our health service.
You may remember that in March, the Labour Health Secretary, Andy Burnham MP, announced that the Labour Government was approving plans for a complete rebuild of the Liverpool Royal Hospital, at a total investment of £451million.
The project would create a brand new hospital with single, en-suite rooms throughout, a garden the size of Albert Dock and a separate A&E entrance.
But on 18 May 2010, the Liverpool Echo reported that the Tory / Lib Dem government was reviewing those plans. They are now under threat, and there is a chance that the Tories and Liberal Democrats might cut the investment altogether.
Liverpool needs a modern NHS, and a Royal hospital fit for the 21st Century. Sign our petition, and demand that the Tory and Liberal Democrat government protects this investment.
