NHS: A hard choice?

Jeremy Hunt

Since 2010, the Tories have cut NHS funding so brutally that tens of thousands of people have died unneccesarily. With no money left to upgrade the antiquated IT system, the NHS was recently held to ransom by hackers. Medical professionals have been forced to strike over unbearable working conditions. Jeremy Hunt has run the NHS into the ground, and the public knows it.

Labour will pledge an extra £37 billion over the course of the next parliament, ensuring A&E waiting times of four hours or less, and moving a million people off waiting lists and into treatment. Labour will also spend £10 billion on upgrading hospital buildings and IT systems, finally turning around years of Tory decline. NHS workers will receive a long-awaited pay rise, and the process of reversing the disaster of privatisation will start right away.
