This will be published as my Express & Echo column this Thursday. After today’s revelations about the conservative candidate there is even more reason to vote for Bob Spencer!

Hugo Swire on Ottery Hospital sell off risk: No I won’t talk to Jeremy Hunt

East Devon’s MP, Hugo Swire is refusing to talk to the secretary of state for health over widespread concern about the transfer of Ottery St Mary Hospital to NHS Property Services on 1 June.

Not only will this company, which is owned by the secretary of state for health, acquire Ottery Hospital and 11 others in Eastern Devon, but it actually has the audacity to charge a hefty rent too.

Local NHS organisations are almost all in the red by millions. The NEW Devon CCG is in deficit by around £80m.

The fears are that the extortionate rents could lead to the eventual sale of the hospital as the local NHS will be unable to pay.
