I welcome the Secretary of State to his new position. I knew him for a number of years before I came to this place and he is a man of great integrity and decency. As Secretary of State, he is in a profoundly important position when it comes to having an impact on the future of the NHS. In my constituency, we face the closure of hospital services in north London and services in the north of my constituency, in Welwyn. May I prevail upon him to grant me a 10 or 15-minute meeting so that I can discuss my concerns? We are between a rock and a hard place.

Well done Charles, let us hope that someone will listen to our plight as far as NHS services go.
I do believe that either Chase Farm Hospital Enfield or QE2 Welwyn Garden City should have an A & E Dept for the residents of our Borough and that Cheshunt Community Hospital should be used more, especially as the Council Tax payers have donated £1M towards the new extension.
