Fareham MP Suella Fernandes is pleased with Science Minister Sam Gyimah MP’s announcement that £70 million of funding will be allocated for new medical treatments.

Ms Fernandes said: ‘This is about investing in our future and improving outcomes for patients in Fareham and the UK. It will not only help to create highly-skilled jobs across the country, but will also develop lifesaving treatments that will help people live better, longer lives.’
