Grantham Journal column: NHS is my saviour and I work hard to save local services

Nothing has taken up more of my time and energy in my seven years as MP than campaigning for local NHS services. The battle to maintain local access to high quality treatment and care is constant. Some of the problems we face relate to the particular circumstances of our local hospital trusts. But I have now concluded that there is a broader problem: the NHS does not have the certainty about future 
funding that it needs to be able to plan and cope with the rising demands of an ageing population and the rising costs of new medical treatments.
