Alex welcomes news that Stockton on Tees is getting a new Community Diagnostic Centre

I’m delighted with the news that a diagnostic centre based in Stockton town centre was approved by Ministers several weeks ago. Securing this centre has been a years’ long dream of North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust and our Labour-led Stockton on Tees Council, and it’s great to see their joint work pay off.

I’m confident that the new centre will play a major role in closing health inequality gaps that blight our area. Now we need commitment form the government for a new general hospital to replace the outdated North Tees building – something I’ve campaigned on for the last 12 years since the Tories ditched plans for one in 2010
