Printing lies on the side of a bus has done nothing to help secure a future for the NHS – Lib Dems

by Steve Beasant on 8 November, 2017

Commenting on reports that Simon Stevens, the chief executive of NHS England, has called for the £350 million Brexit bus money, Judith Jolly, Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson, said:

“Under this government the NHS is moving from crisis to crisis. Without an increase in funding, and proper care and attention given to the needs of staff, the National Health Service as we know it has a very uncertain future.

“Printing lies on the side of a bus has done nothing to help secure a future for the NHS.

“The Liberal Democrats are the only party who have laid out a clear, robust plan to safeguard our NHS for future generations by committing to put up income tax by a penny in the pound, to raise £6bn extra funding which is desperately needed.”
