UKIP in Wellingborough and Rushden is hosting a public meeting to talk about its NHS policies this evening (Monday, December 8).

The meeting, at Rushden Town Bowling Club starting at 7pm, features the party’s candidate in the constituency Dr Jonathan Munday speaking on the NHS and his experience organising healthcare in Central London.

Dr Munday said: “I will be seeking and hearing people’s comments about what they think of NHS services from their GPs and Kettering General Hospital.

“Health services in Nene are underfunded because the Barnett Formula gives £2,000 more per patient to Scotland than we are allowed to spend in Northamptonshire on our public services.

“Patients in Wellingborough and Rushden deserve first-class health services, not a hospital ‘requiring improvement’.”

Dr Munday is standing in Wellingborough and Rushden for UKIP, where he will take on sitting Conservative MP Peter Bone and other confirmed candidates including Labour’s Richard Garvie and the Green Party’s Marion Turner-Hawes.
