MP concerned over North Yorkshire NHS cuts

The MP for Thirsk and Malton, Anne McIntosh, has expressed her concern for cuts to health funding in North Yorkshire.

Although this review is informative a lot of work still has to be done to ensure that North Yorkshire gets a consistently high level of health care whilst reducing the historic debt created by the underfunding

I am campaigning hard with other North Yorkshire MPs for fairer funding for the NHS and we are holding a meeting in early February to discuss the review and why NHS North Yorkshire receives £17 million less than the allocation should provide for their local population demographic.
