I discuss a range of priorities on health with the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, including delivery of the new hospital programme.

The Hon Member will know that the programme was funded at Spending Review 2020 with £3.7bn for 4 years up to 2024/25 with further funding to be announced at the next Spending Review.

I know the Hon Gentleman has particular concerns around the issue of RAAC concrete which is affecting hospitals in his constituency and that the Health Secretary has made ensuring safety for patients and staff at affected sites a top priority.
