Following on from the #fundnotfail campaign from Together for Short Lives earlier in the year that called for an increase in statuary funding for children’s palliative care, it has been confirmed that an increase in funding has been granted.
After calls from Stuart in recent weeks for a funding increase to be allocated to Leeds, the Secretary of State, Matt Hancock MP, has confirmed the allocation to the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
Stuart joined hundreds of members of the community in the constituency in the annual push to raise money for BBC’s Children in Need on Friday 16th November. All money raised goes towards the cause of helping to change children’s lives all across the UK for the better.
The Department for Transport have announced that two consultations will take place to allow constituents to demonstrate their views on HS2 and allow an opportunity to view the plans that are being outlined.
Stuart has today backed the announcement that there will be increased funding for social care for the region. It was announced by the Government that Leeds will receive over £3million in additional funding to ease pressure on the health service going into the winter.
As we mark 100 years since the first women gained the right to vote, Stuart Andrew is inviting everyone in Pudsey, Horsforth and Aireborough to get involved in UK Parliament Week and play a part in our thriving democracy.
