Keith joined Liz Kendall MP for Leicester West, who has led the campaign together with Nicky Morgan MP for Loughborough, Sir Edward Garnier MP for Harborough, Edward Argar MP for Charnwood and local campaigners  to deliver a petition of 128,356 signatures to Number 10 Downing Street

The petition, which demands a public review into NHS England’s plans to stop children’s heart surgery services at Glenfield Hospital, was handed over after months of campaigning. 

Liz Kendall has been leading the fight in parliament with a cross-party group of East Midlands MPs. The MPs have already had a series of meetings with Health Ministers and NHS England bosses to express their strong opposition to the plans.
