Buxton Minor Injuries

The Conservatives are claiming I’m scaremongering by raising my concerns over Buxton’s Minor Injuries Unit and New Mills walk-in centre, but Derbyshire NHS is facing £70 million of cuts this year and another £200 million in the three years to come under the Conservatives’ current spending plans. They won’t guarantee those services to me and they’ve told me that they’re not best value for money.

The new plans for Buxton Health Hub show the Minor Injuries Unit as being just one small room within the building. I’ve seen so many cuts to our health services in High Peak over the last few years from Corbar’s Birthing Unit to Spencer Ward and Fenton Ward at the Cavendish Hospital and I’m going to make sure that I’m there to fight for all of our services here are in High Peak.

Buxton Advertiser: Tory candidate claims Labour MP ‘Scaremongering’ over cuts to local NHS services

Ruth George, Labour's Champion for High Peak

“There has never been such a huge difference between the political parties and the future they offer. I want people in High Peak to know that there is a better alternative than a government which is about to close nearly 20 hospitals, cut £3 billion from our schools, plunge over 4 million working families into poverty through their harsh cuts to Universal Credit and refuses to rule out cuts to pension increases or higher tax and national insurance. In contrast, I will promote Labour’s message of long-term investment in public services, fairness for working people, and decent support for pensioners and those who cannot work.”
