A Strong NHS

There is nothing more important than the NHS – it is a service we all rely on. We all have a moral obligation to make sure it provides the best care possible and is there for everyone who needs it.

Over the past 5 years spending on the NHS has rightly increased every single year to make sure our healthcare system remains the envy of the world. Basingstoke has an ageing population and there is more pressure than ever before on our local NHS. We have to look for new ways to provide healthcare alongside greater demand for eldercare.

“I fully support the plans set out by our local health professionals for a new Critical Treatment Hospital for Basingstoke. As our population expands, we need new ways to deliver the high-quality services that Basingstoke enjoys. My family and I depend on our local NHS. You can only have a strong NHS when you have a healthy economy.”
