When others thought the scheme would never happen Phil continued to push on believing that the facility was needed and would be needed for now and for generations to come.

Finally today the new Hospital Facility has been officially opened by England Rugby Legend Martin Johnson (pictured)

Speaking to the media after the event Phil said "If proof were needed just how much this facility were needed it was provided today by the NHS. They told us that since the doors opened in March through to today over 10,000 people have used the facility. People now have consultants and clinics coming here to them in Harborough rather than patients having to travel to Leicester and Kettering. So much more convenient, less stressful and hundreds of hours saved in travel time. A 21st century facility for a growing 21st century community. Well worth every day of the long running campaign"
