Southern England NHS frontline services to get £69m investment

Up to £69m will be invested in frontline NHS services in parts of southern England over the next four years, a report suggests.

A draft document proposes investments in North East Hampshire and Farnham, Surrey Heath and East Berkshire.

Funds will go towards improving waiting times, self-care services and the creation of 14 new “health hubs” to provide weekend appointments.

The hubs will be in Farnham, Fleet, Farnborough, Aldershot, Yateley, Surrey Heath, Bracknell and Ascot.
