VICTORIA PRENTIS MP ASKS QUESTION ABOUT THE HORTON IN PMQS

During Prime Ministers’ Questions on 12 October 2016, Victoria Prentis MP highlighted the cause of the Horton General Hospital to Theresa May.

Speaking up against the downgrade of Horton maternity services to a midwife-led unit, Victoria asked:

“Does the Prime Minister share my sadness that the majority of Banbury’s babies cannot currently be delivered, as I was, in the Horton General Hospital? Will she join me in using any influence and putting any pressure we can on the Trust to encourage it to recruit the obstetricians we need to reopen our much valued unit?”

The Prime Minister agreed that what matters is a safe maternity service for mother and baby.
