I raised this week’s Hillingdon Hospital CQC report with Cameron at PMQs.
I said “The Prime Minister will have been briefed on the Care Quality Commission report published yesterday into Hillingdon Hospital. The report confirms that we have a hard working, dedicated, professional staff but patients’ safety is being put at risk by critical staff shortages and the fabric of the building described by one consultee as “like something in the 3rd world.”
I asked the PM to meet me and my fellow Hillingdon MPs to discuss how we can secure the resources to ensure the safety of our constituents.”
The PM ‘s response was to cite some of the actions taken by the hospital and to offer a meeting with Jeremy Hunt the Secretary of State for Health.
Unfortunately the Prime Minister then spoilt it by making a number if tedious attempts at political point scoring comments.
I will now follow this up with request for early date for this meeting.
We desperately need investment in our local hospital to support our excellent staff team.
