Proper levels of funding for our NHS, and adult social care. To put an end to the staff shortages and crises we have been facing.
The NHS is our most treasured national institution but the Tories and Lib Dems have pushed it to crisis-point through underfunding and organisational change that aims to Americanise our health service. We are seeing this in our local area: privatisations forced through by the Lib Dem Council and high alerts in summer and winter at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. I will do everything I can to achieve a fair funding settlement for our local NHS with ring-fenced funding for mental health care. I will resist the dangerous plans to restructure the NHS in Cornwall.
