“What has Steve Baker ever done for Wycombe?”

It has been an honour to work for Wycombe since I was first elected in 2010 as its MP. Whether it is running around West Wycombe, seeing a performance at the Wycombe Swan Theatre, exploring our beautiful countryside, or enjoying the culinary delights that our diverse community brings, it has been a pleasure to live in Wycombe with my wife all these years. Given I have had a large national profile over the past decade, the work I have done […]

More, Better Care at Wycombe Hospital – Surgical Hub Accreditation

This week, I was delighted to see the Wycombe Elective Surgical Centre (WESC) has been nominated by the regional NHS team for the prestigious national surgical hub accreditation programme.

This means the Wycombe Elective Surgical Centre, a specialist in diverse fields including hip and knee replacement, paediatrics, and robotic surgery, among […]

Statement: Junior Doctors Strike

It is disappointing that junior doctors in Bucks will strike next week, before the Christmas holidays. The strike will have a significant impact on hospital services. There will be action from 7am on Wednesday 20 December to 7am on Saturday 23 December. As the Health Secretary has said, junior doctors deserve our respect for everything they do but it is disappointing that the BMA junior doctors’ committee have chosen to walk away from pay negotiations and have declared new strikes.

A response to Wycombe Labour’s Open Letter

I have received an open letter from the Labour candidate for Wycombe about the action we are taking to help address the pressures on the NHS in the constituency. The full text of my response can be found below: “Dear Emma, Thank you for your campaign email about the NHS. I do not usually help my partisan opponents by responding to their open letters: it is a diversion from serving Wycombe residents. Exceptionally, I am replying with some wider points to correct some of the claims […]

Update: Many thanks to the national journalists who have taken an interest in this story. As I replied to Adam Boulton earlier: No. I’d *love* a full modern emergency department in #Wycombe. Of course. But please read the articles. — Steve Baker (@SteveBakerHW) November 19, 2019 At each election I have contested since 2010, every other candidate has always said they will get A&E back to Wycombe Hospital. This election appears to be no different.   But Wycombe already has an […]

The Urgent Treatment Centre at Wycombe Hospital

When I stood for election in 2015 and 2017, I said I was demanding an NHS Urgent Treatment Centre at Wycombe Hospital, which is classed by the NHS as a Type 3 A&E. I am delighted our Urgent Treatment Centre was officially opened in December 2018. The Centre is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is led by GPs and staffed by doctors and nurses. You can just turn-up at the centre if you need urgent, […]
