Leader of Boston Borough Council, Councillor Aaron Spencer said: “It has been a true honour to welcome Boris Johnson and Matt Hancock to Boston today. I am thrilled to hear that an investment is being offered to enhance and develop Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital, which has been underfunded for long enough and suffered through difficult times with immense pressures.”
Councillor Spencer discussed plans for the new PE21 masterplan with the Health Secretary, who showed keen interest in seeing the project develop, particularly with the introduction of additional health services within the Borough of Boston.
