Really enjoyed welcoming Rt Hon Greg Hands MP, the Chairman of the Conservative Party, to St Helier yesterday alongside local ward councillor Wendy Clark.
Whilst here, we got to chat about what May's funding announcement will mean for renovations to St Helier and finally delivering on that second hospital for the Borough, as well as next steps with it.
Upgrades to St Helier and building the second hospital are things I've been campaigning for since before I was elected your local Member of Parliament - and it's been really exciting since May's announcement to work with the local NHS Trust on getting shovels in the ground and readying works start.
After all, it was the Trust who have been shaping the plans - and are equally looking forward to what it will mean for those living across our area.
