We cannot expect doctors to work more hours at weekends without paying appropriate rates

The NHS is widely acknowledged to be the best in the world for providing top quality, value for money care.

A World Bank study reports that the UK spends 9.1% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on its NHS—the second lowest in Europe. Holland spends 12.9%. The UK needs to increase its funding—even if it means tax increases.

The use of agency nurses has tripled in the last three years and costs the NHS £1.6 billion and the use of agency doctors continues to increase. This money must be used for training more nurses and doctors.

We believe that the agenda of the Government is to increase privatisation so that their friends in private healthcare industry make more money.

What can you do?
