Radiotherapy facility at Lister Hospital

Volume 594: debated on Tuesday 10 March 2015

The Petition of residents of the constituency of Stevenage,

Declares that patients who are residents of Stevenage and the surrounding towns and villages have to travel to Mount Vernon Hospital in Hillingdon to receive radiotherapy treatment and that this journey is long and exacting and often has to be made on consecutive days.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to encourage NHS England to provide a radiotherapy facility at Lister Hospital in Stevenage in order to make the journey for radiotherapy treatment much easier for patients who live in Stevenage and the surrounding towns and villages.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Stephen McPartland.]
