- UK Health Secretary Steve Barclay has been called upon to acknowledge the fact that the Conservative promise to build 40 new hospitals in England by 2030 can no longer be fulfilled. Though Barclay maintains the government’s commitment to the 2019 pledge, he revealed that the hospitals included in the programme have changed. Moreover, there is doubt that construction work will be complete for many of the original 40 hospitals by 2030. Instead, Barclay disclosed that hospitals at risk of collapse and in need of an immediate upgrade will substitute some of the original buildings on the list. The Shadow Health Secretary, Wes Streeting, accused the Tories of “overpromising and underdelivering,” citing that many of the rebuilding projects would affect only existing medical centres rather than the construction of new structures.
