£6 BILLION Boost for our NHS
The extra funding will be paid for by an extra 1p on Income Tax. The money raised will be guaranteed for the NHS and social care services.
The Conservatives are sitting by and letting a crisis develop in our NHS. Our hospitals face massive real-term funding cuts under the Conservatives.
Local campaigner Gordon Lishman said:
“Our NHS is at breaking point. It needs real investment to survive. The Liberal Democrats are being honest with people. By chipping in a little more we can safeguard the future of the NHS.
“We will all need the NHS at some point in our lives. The Lib Dems are the only party with a fully-costed plan to give our doctors and nurses the funding they need to continue providing a world-class health service.
"Liberals have led the campaigns against Labour closing the A&E at Burnley, then for the new Urgent Care Unit, for the new Health Centre in Colne, and now for a new health centre in Barnoldswick."
