Lilian was joined by many including 5 City Councillors to ask about perceptions of the NHS which is struggling cos adult care is being underfunded and poverty is increasing demand on A&E and bed provision.
In recent months we’ve gone –
from a promised £350 million extra a week for the NHS
to NHS staff asking where the promised extra money is
to an autumn statement that doesn’t mention the NHS
to Conservative MPs suggesting we can no longer afford the NHS.
Remember, the NHS is the most affordable way because we avoid having to organise individual insurance for millions of people, and we avoid the cost of paying for the profit demanded by private medical insurance.
Local concerns picked up include appointments at the local GPs, dealing and litter in a specific neighbourhood, and wanting a landowner to get on with a development of a former pub site.
