Lansley: we support WCH rebuild

Conservative shadow health secretary Andrew Lansley gave West Cumberland Hospital's rebuild/refurbishment as an example of an NHS capital programme which the Conservatives want to protect.

He told Sky News last week that the Conservatives are committed to real terms increases in spending on the NHS.

He stressed that the Conservatives would protect capital expenditure for the NHS and said that the Tories would build new hospitals, invest in diagnostic equipment, and in primary care facilities, although they plan "to get rid of the bureaucracy".
