Questioning Health Ministers on our Oncology situation and asking them to visit Scunthorpe Hospital

I have been contacted over the last few days by many residents who are concerned about recent changes to our oncology services in Scunthorpe Hospital.

This afternoon I told the Health Minister in Parliament that this is unacceptable and also requested that he visit our hospital.

Following my question in Parliament I wrote to the Secretary of State to ask him to work with me to arrange a visit to Scunthorpe Hospital. During that visit I intend to reiterate that Scunthorpe Hospital is in need of an upgrade.

On Friday I met with our local CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) and the Chief Executive of the hospital to share my concerns.
