Liberal Democrat Telford candidate announced

Jo McKenna has been announced as the Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate for Telford in the forthcoming general election.

From their website:

As a Consultant Orthopeadic Surgeon, Jo McKenna is passionate about our NHS. Jo understands first-hand the pressures faced by our hardworking doctors and nurses every day.

Jo is outraged by the Conservative Government’s decision to rubber stamp the closure of the Accident and Emergency Department at Princess Royal Hospital, and replace it with an Urgent Care Centre. Telford will be the largest town in England without an A&E department.

Jo McKenna backs the Lib Dem plan for the NHS, including the recruitment of 8,000 more GPs and the reform of NHS dentistry, so we can all get a doctor or dentist appointment more easily.

“Healthy children can learn, healthy teachers can teach, healthy people can work. The Conservative government has destroyed the NHS and left it a hollowed out shell. I stand not just for Telford but for the NHS and all those who work for it and need it.”
