Helen calls on the Government to support King's College Hospital prepare for the coronavirus

Coronavirus has the potential to cause unprecedented additional pressures on our NHS.  King’s College Hospital in my constituency has the highest level of debt of any NHS trust in the country and I have long been campaigning for the government to provide the funding and resources King’s needs. The staff at King’s work tirelessly all year round, but will undoubtedly face an incredibly challenging period in the months ahead. It is now of vital importance that the government provides the funding for the testing, care and treatment that King’s has to provide as a result of coronavirus.  I asked the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to ensure that King’s has the funding it needs.
