The Princess Alexandra Hospital is one of the most important public services we have here in Harlow, serving thousands of people every year. However, it is under threat due to huge cuts to our local health service.
Our town deserves to have the best health service possible but the government are simply refusing to listen. The current Tory government has slashed funding for the NHS in Harlow and throughout Essex which has left our local hospital struggling to keep the level of staffing and services it needs to care for people in our town.
As your local Labour Party, we believe that the NHS should have the funding necessary to provide our town with the services it needs and will always be on the side of the staff who work for it.
Your Labour-run council has worked closely with the local Healthcare Trust and Clinical Commissioning Group to save our hospital, but the Tory government have consistently ignored us. Without the extra money the Princess Alexandra so desperately needs, David Cameron is failing the people of our town.
