I know that many constituents are concerned about the changing nature of the health landscape in Hillingdon.

That is why I recently held a wide ranging debate in Parliament on the future of health services in North West London.

I raised three main issues; Mount Vernon Cancer Centre was going to be moved to a planned new hospital in Hatfield. Fortunately the plans collapsed, and there is an opportunity to reopen the debate on the future of the Centre.

There is still a risk that it could be moved to either Welwyn Garden City or Stevenage, which would be very bad news for Patients from Hillingdon. That is why I have launched a cross party campaign in partnership with Community Voice to say "keep Cancer Services at Mount Vernon".

The petition now stands at over 27,000 signatures, and it is not too late to add your voice Find out more at www.supportmountvernon.com or call my office 01923 822 876.

I was also concerned at news that Harefield Hospital's application for Foundation Trust status appears to have been blocked yet again. This puts at risk the £20 m that had been lined up to upgrade facilities. John Randall and I pressed the Health Minister in the debate to review the case. Our point was that Harefield Hospital has been mucked around enough over the years and that it is time to build on excellence and stop undermining it.

Finally there is a very strong community view that medical services should continue to be provided on the site of Northwood and Pinner Hospital and that the war memorial should be respected.

I have made both these points to the PCT directly and have urged them to seize the opportunity to build on the past and create a new community asset in which local people can take pride in.
