Local Government Association chair Lord Porter (Con) is recovering after major heart surgery.
This morning Lord Porter announced on Twitter he underwent triple bypass surgery last Thursday and thanked “brilliant” staff at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
Lord Porter announced in May he will stand to be re-elected as LGA chair.
This time last week I was just starting my Triple bypass operation and now thanks to the brilliant team Tommy @GSTTnhs I am having to wrestle with a momentous choice, should I have my breakfast before a shower or have the shower first ?
