Today's Deal Hospital Fete was packed - it was the most successful ever. I had a great time with my family. I also got to ride on the model train with the Mayor of Deal and fete co-ordinator Sarah Thompson, which was a great laugh and is pictured left.
Amongst the fun there was a more serious issue. The future of Deal Hospital. Many people spoke to about their concerns for the future of the hospital, which I share.
Deal Hospital is a treasured community asset and I will fight to save our hospital. So I have launched a survey and called a public meeting to enable us to make clear to the doctors how much we care about the hospital and the services we want to see provided there for the future.
