Chris Grayling MP in Parliament 17th November 2020

MP for Epsom & Ewell, Chris Grayling spoke in the Commons yesterday to ask a question to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care about investment in Hospitals in his constituency.

The video of the exchange can be viewed below:

The full transcript of the exchange can be found below:

I welcome the Government’s substantial investment in hospital services in my area. The Secretary of State knows that I remain disappointed that Epsom, was not the NHS’s choice of location— rather than Sutton—but will he assure me that as the NHS reviews the impact of the pandemic and looks at future capacity needs, he will keep an open mind if that decision needs to be changed because in the end Epsom represents better value for the health service?

Response from Secretary of State:

I appreciate my right hon. Friend’s tenacity and doggedness in making the case for Epsom. I am a big supporter of the decision that has been made, and I am afraid, from his point of view, that the final decision on the location of the new hospital—in Sutton—has now been made. However, I am always open-minded to what further health services can be deployed in Epsom itself, and I suggest that my right hon. Friend and I work together on that.

What do you think?
