I am leading the campaign for Immingham to be granted free port status after Brexit. The benefits of such a move would be vast for our local economy which is home to the UK's largest port complex by tonnage.
The Government have repeatedly pointed out that if we are to improve the local economy and extend growth, we will need greater transport connectivity. The Humber region has the largest port complex in the country and it is developing the offshore renewables sector.
The Department of Health has indicated it believes that there are up to 3000 too many pharmacies in England. At the same time they have proposed a series of policy measures which would divert investment from local pharmacies to other care settings or to online suppliers of medicines. Beyond this there is little detail about the Government’s plans. Never the less it is easy to see that the current direction of policy, if not challenged will lead to a serious fracturing of the pharmacy network in England.
