A sustainable future for the NHS
My younger brother was born with a cleft palate and a hole in the heart. He had to have open heart surgery at age 15 to repair a new hole that opened up. I'm forever grateful to NHS, as without the incredible doctors and nurses there he wouldn't be here today.
Liberal Democrats are clear that our national healthcare system must provide high quality care to all – across both mental and physical health. As your MP, I will fight for an urgent injection of funding for the NHS and an integrated approach to health and social care. Brexit is also a threat to our health service: 2,700 EU nurses left the health service in 2016 including 658 locally. I will continue to campaign to protect the rights of European doctors and nurses to live and work in our area.
