Health Cash Calls

A St Ives' MP has used a debate in Parliament to call for fairer funding for Cornwall's healthcare.

Andrew George says in the last six years, we have had over 200 million pounds less than the government's target for the Duchy.

He is warning patients will suffer if ministers do not act: "Cornwall must make sure that it gets a fair share of the cake. Cornwall gets significantly less than the government says we deserve. I would be very surprised if there is anywhere else in the country which has received such a significant difference between the allocation and what the government says it should get.

"The Royal Cornwall Hospitals' Trust receives the lowest payment of any acute trust in the country. RCHT inherited debts and although repayments have reduced that to twenty-two million pounds, the new quasi-independent foundation trust will inherit this debt when it takes over next year."
