Clive was delighted to open the new Eltham Community Hospital in Passey Place. The hospital has already welcomed its first patients into the two intermediate care wards.
Clive explains: "I was really delighted to be present at the opening of this wonderful new hospital. This hospital was commissioned and designed under the last Labour government and I have been lobbying local health chiefs and government ministers ever since to ensure that it was delivered so it was wonderful to finally see the vision become a reality. It has been several years in the making, but I am sure will now bring enormous benefits for local people, including:
- GP Practices from the Eltham Palace Surgery and the Eltham Medical Practice
- mental health services
- children's services
- minor procedures
- outpatient care
- support for people with long term conditions.
