The Tories have pushed the NHS into crisis:
• Waiting lists are up (3.8m in England); A&Es are in crisis (1.8m people waited longer than 4 hours last year); it’s harder to see your GP (1-in-4 wait a week or more to see or speak to someone) and hospitals are in financial crisis (£2.45bn in deficit, the worst on record).
• The Tories cut £4.6 billion from social care budgets in the last parliament and they’ve completely failed to set out a proper plan to fund it.
Labour will offer the health and social care services people need:
• We will always give the NHS the money it needs, we will invest to tackle the crisis in social care and will join up services from home to hospital with a properly integrated health and social care service.
• We will make sure that mental health is given the same priority as physical health.
