06 May 2011
Andrew Lansley and Vicky Ford MEP recently visited the campus where the fifth bioincubator building is being built.


Andrew said, 'it is wonderful to see first-hand the excellent work that is done here at the Babraham Research Campus. This 44m boost from the Government will help to foster new research and create new jobs in our region, putting Babraham firmly at the forefront of world-class biomedical and life sciences research.'


This is fantastic news and truly welcomed by all in the constituency.

Extract from: 'The Future of Health and Public Service Regulation' Speech

May I begin by expressing my warm thanks to the NHS Confederation for arranging this series of speeches on the future of our public services and for inviting me to contribute? At the start of a Parliament, it is very good to take an opportunity to think about the direction and the objectives of reform and of policy, somewhat free of the partisan demands of electioneering. The NHS Confederation continues to be, under Gill’s leadership, a strong advocate of reform and of high standards of leadership and management in the NHS. I have greatly valued our discussions over the last two years and even if we cross swords occasionally, I know we have shared aims in securing the opportunity for strong leadership and quality management to deliver high standards of healthcare in our NHS.
