A fully funded NHS, fit for the present and the future

The NHS is struggling to meet the needs of the British people.

Successive governments have tried to put their mark on the NHS but the challenges facing the NHS are numerous and complex and require a concerted cross party plan to secure its future. 

We have all either read, experienced ourselves or have loved ones who have struggled to get a GP appointment, waited months to see a consultant or waited hours in an over stretched A&E department. 

There are now more nurses leaving the NHS than joining it, and during this year's winter crisis we were informed by A&E doctors that patients were dying in hospital corridors.

The NHS is full of staff who have dedicated their lives to care for others but are not given adequate resources to do just that, care.

The NHS is the jewel in the crown of our public services and it needs to be fully resourced so it can meet the needs of the British people. 

And a cross party review of the NHS is required so we can have a grown-up discussion and strategically plan what we want the NHS to deliver, and how it is to be funded to continue to serve this generation and the next.
