Maggie welcomes further investment at Ilkeston Community Hospital

Maggie Throup, Member of Parliament for Erewash has welcomed the announcement from the Department of Health and Social Care that over £6m has been allocated to the Royal Derby Hospital for the development of orthopaedic and endoscopy services, with some of this being invested at Ilkeston Community Hospital.

Maggie said:

“The extra funding for the Derbyshire STP will help to establish a community endoscopy service at Ilkeston Community Hospital and allow orthopaedic surgery to be carried out, helping to more efficiently manage demand as well as improve access for my constituents.

“Overall, well over £6m has been allocated to the Royal Derby Hospital for it to develop its services at the city site and at the Community Hospital in Ilkeston. This is really good news for Erewash residents as more of them will be able to be treated closer to home in a timely manner.”
