Mr Argar, 42, said: 'As an assiduous reader of the Eastern Daily Press, I saw recently the story outlining their plans, or the trust's plans, for a UTC.

'The key to developing them or making them make progress would be partnership. I look forward to the hospital trust, [Mr Baker] and the CCQ working in partnership to deliver an outcome.'
