Campaign to defend the health service from Tory cruelty
04 May, 2018
• WE all know the NHS and social care are in crisis due to Tory underfunding and privatisation. Patients with any money, government assumes, will resort to private health firms rather than bear increasing pain.
NHS England wants to save £900million on the NHS and almost £250m on social care. There is also rationing of access to hospital beds for the “frail and elderly”. GPs have been told to limit their hospital referrals and only one-third of children who need mental health support will get it by next year.
The NHS and social care are under renewed attack. All patients should consider joining a local defend NHS campaign against this cruel Tory rationing.
