North West Norfolk Labour candidate Tim Leaver backs party pledge to rebuild King’s Lynn hospital





North West Norfolk’s Labour candidate has praised the party’s pledge to see the Queen Elizabeth Hospital rebuild through.

Labour confirmed yesterday that it is committed to rebuilding the Lynn hospital if they win the election.

To cut NHS waiting lists, the party has pledged to deliver 40,000 extra appointments a week at evenings and weekends, paid for by “clamping down on tax dodgers and closing non-dom loopholes”.

Tim Leaver, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for North West Norfolk, said: “This is the commitment we’ve all been waiting for.

“The rebuild of QEH is long overdue. If elected as MP for North West Norfolk I will campaign to make this happen, working with a new Labour government to get this done as soon as possible.

“Only Labour can deliver the change the NHS needs.”

Wes Streeting, the shadow health secretary, said: “Rishi Sunak failed to keep his promises to cut waiting lists or build a single new hospital.

“Given another five years in charge, he’ll fail again and waiting lists will hit ten million.

“Only Labour has a plan to deliver the change our NHS needs.

“We are committed to delivering the New Hospitals Programme, including Queen Elizabeth, and we will cut NHS waiting times with 40,000 extra appointments a week at evenings and weekends, paid for by clamping down on tax dodgers and non-doms.”
