On the 11th February 2021, I was able to visit the Repat Hospital, which is currently in Phase Two of the refurbishment and redevelopment plan. The aim of this project is to provide and boost health services for those in the South.
I had the opportunity to tour the new facilities with local Member for Elder, Carolyn Power MP. It was fantastic to see the new developments and how this project has progressed. It is particularly important for those suffering with dementia, as the development includes a state-of-the-art 12 bed specialist facility for patients with this condition requiring short term medical treatment before returning to their homes.Read more

Together we collected a number of wonderful gifts, which I know will go home to many thankful families.Read more

At 11am on 11 November 1918, the guns on the Western Front fell silent. After four years of fighting, World War I had at last come to an end.
