I'm working to ensure residents across Burnley & Padiham have access to world-class healthcare by securing a new radiology centre at Burnley Hospital, and ensuring everyone can access a GP appointment when they need one.

I'm working to support our NHS so residents have better local services when they need them.

  • My mission has always been a whole scale levelling up of healthcare provision in Burnley and Padiham. And in the time I’ve been your Member of Parliament I’ve worked with East Lancashire NHS Trust to secure two new endoscopy rooms, state-of-the-art breast cancer screening equipment, the introduction of surgical robots, and a strategy to improve emergency care.
  • We need to guarantee a long-term future for Burnley hospital through skills, increased diagnostics & investment. And that's exactly where my focus is.
  • Burnley has one of Lancashire's best maternity units. And I'm working with the Trust to build on this and make Burnley an even better place to raise a family.

Working to deliver world class healthcare for residents
