Thanks to matron Vicky Osborne and Deputy Head of Nursing Julie Lankester for showing me around Ward 17 at Glenfield Hopsital on Friday.

I also really enjoyed chatting to some of the patients of this high dependency care unit for people with breathing problems. They all told me of the excellent care they were receiving and how they hoped to be able to go home soon. 

A massive thanks goes to all NHS staff for the work you do over Christmas and New Year!!

Today I visited Glenfield Hospital to deliver my gift for an older person staying in hospital this Christmas.

Christmas can be a very lonely and difficult time for many older people, let’s help make Christmas special for them! Please donate a gift, today is the deadline so if you can, take your donations to the main receptions at Glenfield, the Royal or the General.

After years of anxious waiting and campaigning, NHS England announced last week that we will keep children’s heart surgery in Leicester.

Watch a clip of my interview with BBC East Midlands about the news that children’s heart surgery is staying at Glenfield Hospital. Thanks so much to the staff, patients and their families, charities, the East Midlands MPs and all the members of the public who backed the campaign. We couldn’t have done it without you!

I’m absolutely thrilled with the decision and I’d like to thank each and every one of you who has supported us along the way.
 
Since I was first elected as the MP for Leicester West seven years ago, the future of children’s heart surgery at Glenfield has been my most important local campaign and I am extremely proud to have helped lead the fight to save this vital service.
 
It has been a huge team effort and I am very grateful to all the patients and families, the brilliant staff at Glenfield, charities and MPs from across the East Midlands.
 
Last week’s decision was a vote of confidence in the hard work of our amazing doctors and nurses, and in the hospital’s plans for the future.
 
As your MP I’ll continue to do everything I can to back the hospital and hold the Department of Health and NHS England to account in supporting Glenfield to achieve its goals.
 
We couldn’t have done this without you – thank you from the bottom of my heart.
 
Liz
