Why does St George's Hospital NHS Trsut have a deficit of £50 million? The answer is lack of funding.
We should not be leaving our hospitals with the bare minimum. We cannot take risks with our healthcare system. But at the moment that is exactly what the Government are doing.
Today I stood up and spoke in a debate on cut to NHS funding. Lives are being risked.
It is not the fault of our Docotrs, nurses, allied health professionals or hostpital support staff. It is the fault of the Government underfunding and underprioritising our NHS.
I said that I would stand up for the NHS, today was another day in which I did just that.
