Liberal Democrat Vision for a Stronger NHS - Paul Ray

Lib Dem candidate for Lichfield and Burntwood, Paul Ray, has outlined his belief in a strong NHS: "as your MP I would fight to protect our health care system.

To ensure it carries on delivering for future generations. The Lib Dems would:
● invest an extra £6bn a year in health and social care via a penny on income tax
● around £4bn will go to the NHS and £2bn will plug the gap in social care funding
● £14 million will be specifically allocated to the NHS here in southeast Staffs."
Conservative policies are destroying the NHS and must be opposed. Cuts to healthcare budget of £104m by 2021 are damaging for Staffordshire, with proposals to cut the number of minor injury units, reduce the number of community beds, and reduce the number of A&E centres in our county from 3 to 2. Paul has already lead a Lib Dem campaign against changes at the Samuel Johnson hospital and will continue to fight for increased NHS funding.
