HEREFORDSHIRE MP Jesse Norman will be holding an adjournment debate this afternoon to discuss access to health services on the Welsh border as well as funding for rural NHS services.

The Hereford Times reported last month that those living in the Herefordshire parish of Welsh Newton were losing out in a battle over choice.

Locals said they were being pushed into Wales for treatment when they would rather stay in England after changes were made to the Aneurin Bevan Health Board last September.

The debate starts at the end of business today.
