Recently retired local doctors offer their assessment of an NHS struggling with underfunding and over politicking.
Our NHS has been undermined and fragmented. Hard-working and dedicated frontline staff are being dangerously overstretched.
We must put money in and take the politics out of our NHS.
But this must be real money. Not counterfeit promises from a magic money tree.
We’d put 1p on income tax to save our NHS. And reverse rules which allow private companies to cherry pick the profitable bits of the NHS and which add to the fragmentation, inefficiency and waste. Patients must always come before profit.
