Hello, I'm Beth!
I am proud to be Labour's Candidate for Corby and East Northamptonshire, fighting for the community I call home.
We forced a U-turn! UCC Saved
I am so pleased Corby’s Urgent Care Centre has been saved. It’s a credit to the work of the Action Group (Lyn, Maria and the gang) who I was proud to support in their Judicial Review.
This is a really important service for our community that needs to be retained in the long term, and we must see our health services develop further as our towns and villages grow.
I have to say I am disappointed to see attempts at rewriting history from those in power, who are claiming victory but who didn’t support us along the way (and who originally agreed with the downgrade! 👎🏻).
It’s great news that the UCC has been saved and we forced a u-turn but we cannot be complacent - we all know the strain the NHS is under and the cuts imposed by this government.
Here’s to continuing the fight for a properly funded NHS and parity of funding for Northamptonshire!
