Labour's Shadow Health Minister, Andy Burnham, visited Lancaster and launched Labour’s five pledges to help improve the local Royal Lancaster Infirmary, setting out Labour’s better plan for local NHS services in the Morecambe Bay Trust. This includes, the first pledge, to recognise the special circumstances of Morecambe Bay Trust in relation to funding.


Labour has launched five pledges to help improve the local Royal Lancaster Infirmary:

  1. Recognise the special circumstances of Morecambe Bay Trust in relation to funding
  2. Work with our brilliant NHS staff to make the Royal Lancaster Infirmary a better hospital
  3. More doctors and nurses for our hospital
  4. Guarantee a GP appointment in 48 hours across the Morecambe Bay area
  5. Repeal the Tory Health Act that opened up our hospitals to privatisation
It's fantastic that after years of work from Labour candidates and MPs we've got a pledge from the Labour Party that Morecambe Bay's special circumstances will be recognised under a Labour government when it comes to funding.  We have fantastic NHS staff locally, but the current funding doesn't meet local need or recognise the challenging geography of the Trust.
