Our local NHS

Steve Brine made the future of our NHS his number one priority from day one and has focused on the issue since he was first elected as our local Member of Parliament in May 2010.

He says; "I was clear health would be my priority and stayed true to my word, immersing myself in truly understanding the issues. You have to see the health economy across the entire area, to see how that fits together in the context of the NHS for the long-term benefit of patients and tax-payers.

"I always approach the issue calmly and in measured terms, as you should expect from a responsible and experienced Member of Parliament."

Steve is clear that his focus on the NHS is about secondary (ie; hospital) care but also encompasses primary care (GP services and community pharmacy), social and community care and mental health services which he is passionate about.
