Last Autumn, Sir George invited Geoff Hoon, the Leader of the House of Commons, to visit his constituency and see the local NHS at first hand.
"I was delighted that Geoff Hoon accepted, and he will be in Andover next Tuesday, 14th February. He will visit a dental surgery, a medical centre - and then look in at Andover Hospital and Willow Court. He will then have a working lunch with key members of the local PCT and NHS Trusts before returning to London."
Sir George said that there had been many improvements to the local NHS which he welcomed; but there are many challenges that remain. "I want Mr Hoon to get a balanced picture of what is happening locally."
