MP welcomes new Harrogate A&E funding

Harrogate and Knaresborough MP, Andrew Jones has welcomed news that the local NHS Foundation Trust is to receive additional cash to support Accident & Emergency services.  The news came in a letter to Mr Jones from Phillip Dunne MP, the Minister of State for Health.

The award to Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust of £340,000 comes from a £100m Government capital investment fund to support the introduction of what is called ‘primary care streaming’ in A&E departments.  This will enable patients to be seen more quickly at the busiest times.

Commenting Mr Jones said: “Wherever I go people have nothing but praise for our local hospital.  Indeed the staff have won national plaudits for the quality of care given.

“That is why I am so pleased to see this extra funding going in to A&E to support that hard work and to further improve the patient’s experience.  This investment is particularly important to A&E as this is often the place where patients go when they feel most vulnerable and most in need of support.”
