NHS - really worried

Closures, privatisations and immovable austerity. No positive Government action. A weak and unhelpful Health Minister. The health of our country in jeaperdy. Appalling pay for nursing staff who are highly qualified. I used to be a staunch Labour voter but no more. The Labour Party isn't fit for government so what is going to happen? I will have to vote Tory in the near future knowing full well that the NHS isn't safe in their hands. Solution? A start would be to get rid of Jeremy Hunt! The weakest Health minister that I can recall.

No you don't have to vote Tory. You could vote for someone else, or even not vote at all!

Don't vote Tories. Whatever you do.

Why do people think they have to vote Tory because they don't like Labour. Other parties are available and they might actually make an impact if people actually voted for them rather than writing them off and voting for someone knowing they disagree with their plans for NHS

It's so baffling

Your logic is illogical...if you vote labour that is your best chance of saving the nhs, however unfit you think corbyn is, he is a safer pair of hands than a tory government with an increased mandate to go even further to the right with deeper cuts to services. I almost suspect this is a troll post as surely no previous labour voter thinks voting tory will help the nhs?! Disabled people have died already, they dont care about them or the nhs, only whether their shares in private healthcare will be paying out nicely in a few years. Please, please do more research.

At least consider lib dem...

Health Minister specifics aside (whole other thread) but what the Government can't solve directly is the huge NHS wastage through people using it improperly (going to A&E for minor complaints), people wasting GP time for complaints they can self medicate and getting prescriptions for paracetamol they can buy cheaply over the counter.

No Health Minister or Government can solve these problems, so using a vote based on who the Health Minister is a wasted one IMO

Today I have hypocritically bought health insurance. I've put it off and put it off as I don't bloody agree with it.

What glittering successes over the last 2 years make you think the Tory party is fit for government? That's all they've been solely in charge for. The previous 5 years weren't good even with the Lib Dems coalition.

3% stamp duty surcharge on second homes slowing down the housing market? I don't see how that is a Tory attack on the poorest in society

If you vote Labour the country wont be able to afford the NHS.
