Phase Four of the Lister Hospital development programme has been given the go ahead. Stephen McPartland MP said “This is fantastic news for Stevenage and I have been pressing Ministers for clarification on the reconfiguration of health services in Hertfordshire. We have been working hard to ensure this project is given the green light and the Lister becomes a centre of clinical excellence.”
Stephen continued, “I am delighted that we have managed to secure another £71 million investment in healthcare in Stevenage. This comes to around a quarter of a billion pounds that the new government is investing in Stevenage health and education.”
Stephen added “Protecting and improving our local NHS is a key priority and I will continue working with Unions, managers, Staff, clinicians and patients to deliver the best healthcare possible for local people. This is just the start and we need to campaign hard to make sure we deliver real results. There has been too much talk over the last thirteen years, it is time for action”.
