I am contacted often about local health services.  Almost everyone thinks that Wycombe Hospital should be at the centre of our local health provision and should be used to the maximum benefit.

Given that the PFI at Wycombe Hospital will be […]

Debate on Hospital Car Parking Charges


Yesterday I made an intervention during a debate on Hospital Car Parking Charges. You can view the full debate here. Steve Baker (Wycombe) (Con): I want to set in context what my hon.
