The latest figures show 1 in 4 people wait a week or more to speak to a GP or nurse, or don’t get an appointment at all. It is clear, the Tories are letting patients down and presiding over an NHS in crisis. But, it doesn’t have to be like this.

December’s A&E performance was the worst on record, across England over 300,000 patients waited longer than four hours in A&E, almost 70,000 had to wait longer than four hours on a trolley for a hospital bed and so far this winter more than 92,000 patients have been stuck in the back of ambulances outside hospitals.

Labour will stand up for our NHS. We will:

  • give the NHS over £37 billion of extra investment,
  • cut waiting lists by guaranteeing treatment within 18 weeks,
  • put safe staffing levels into law,
  • halt the Tory hospital closure plans
  • and join up services from home to hospital with a properly integrated health and social care service.
