Welcome to the North West Hampshire Lib Dem Website!

Thank you for visiting our website and thank you also if you are one of the many people who supported us in the Borough Council elections last year.

For the Liberal Democrats, one of the most important things is to be accessible to local residents - all year round. We believe in letting local people know what we are doing and in actively involving people in shaping what happens in the local area. This website is a part of that - with a wide range of information about our campaigning locally and nationally.

If you have any suggestions of other information you would like to see on this website, please do e-mail us at info@nwhantslibdems.org.uk. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Clive Jones questioned the Rt Hon. Norman Lamb, Lib Dem Minister for Health at the Lib Dem Spring conference in Liverpool 13-15th March 2015.

    Clive's question was," By and large GP's do a good job in diagnosing cancer. Since having the disease myself I have found many people who have had a delayed diagnosis for a variety of reasons. When you return to the Health Ministry after May 7th will you specifically look at working with GP's to improve the early diagnosis of cancer."

    Norman replied that he would certainly be doing that to improve the diagnosis skills of GP's. and improving the publics awareness of what signs to look for.

    "25% of cancer patients are diagnosed late giving them a reduced chance of survival. The skills of GP's must be improved and also the publics awareness of what needs to looked for has to be improved.

    If the same standards of our best areas were spread across the whole country. An extra 20,000 people a year would be saved", said Norman Lamb.
