Happy birthday NHS?

In July the NHS celebrated its 70th birthday. It should be a time for celebration, but as a nurse I have the duty of care to tell you that our healthcare system is on its last leg, and Brexit will kill the NHS.

Paramedic Student, Luke Samuels, is a Remainer Now

Luke, a paramedic student who voted to leave the EU, tells us why he’d now vote Remain if he had the chance.

Labour cannot be the party of the NHS and a party to Brexit

The Labour party has produced an excellent video about the damage that has been brought to our NHS. After 7 years of Austerity, staff are leaving in droves, patients are at risk and we're in the worst winter crisis ever seen.

Brexit is the new excuse for Austerity

Millions of voters, on both sides during the EU referendum, voted in the hopes of saving the NHS. One year on, the NHS is deep in crisis. The NHS has a staffing crisis, a funding crisis and increasing impacts from cuts to other services like social care that multiply the number of people going to the NHS and the length of time they stay in healthcare. We should be outraged, but we shouldn't be too surprised.
