Have your say

Hundreds of Sheffield people said the NHS is their biggest concern in a suvery by a city MP.

Paul Blomfield, who represents Sheffield Central , found that two thirds ofthe 900 people who took part thought he should prioritise the NHS as an issue in Parliament.

More than half believed raising the issue of poverty should be a priority and more than a third said education.

The biggest local concerns were poverty, jobs and public transport. The survey was sent to households as part of Mr Blomfield’s annual Big Conversation consultation.

Mr Blomfield said: “I’ll be taking these concerns to Parliament and will also be raising other worries about education, jobs, public transport and welfare cuts.”
