It was a very proud moment for me to be asked to cut the cake to celebrate Buckland Hospital's first birthday. It seems like just yesterday I was being shown around the new hospital when it opened to patients last June.
Everyone said that we'd never get a new Hospital in Dover, but we all pulled together and now we have a brand new, state of the art hospital in the heart of our community. The hospital now provides specialised, local services that save people thousands of journeys to Ashford and Margate.
There are now plans to build a new health and social care hub on the site of the old hospital, which will help provide even more much needed care in our community. I will continue to campaign for a fairer share of healthcare for Dover and Deal.
