There is no doubt that the NHS is in crisis. Last week, the snow showed how close to the brink our services are.
NHS England warned of a severe crisis this winter, saying that -
- Fewer beds would be available
- Patients would be stranded
- Shortage of doctors and nurses continues
- Social Care funding woefully continues
- A & E would be overwhelmed
Despite these warnings, we have seen chaos and indignity, thousands of operations cancelled, patients treated in ambulances and on trolleys, and the 4-hour target for A&E being failed, including at Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester.
We must ensure quality treatment in our hospitals and the survival of the NHS. Labour proper funding for the future. The NHS was created by the Labour Party and we will not let it die at the hands of the Tories.

Labour's Brexit tune is ah-changing, which is good news for remain voting Winchester and Chandler's Ford.
On Tuesday 26th February, Jeremy Corbyn made a wide-ranging speech setting out Labour’s vision for Britain after Brexit.
He focused on our future economic relationship with the EU. In particular, Corbyn put clear red water between us and the Tory Party by declaring Labour totally committed to staying in the customs union.
He said, “Labour would seek a final deal that gives full access to European Markets and maintains the benefits of the single market and the custom union… to negotiate a new comprehensive UK-EU customs union…”
This approach would mean that we would avoid tariffs on our goods traded in Europe and it is putting forward a sensible way to help solve the Northern Ireland border issue.

Corbyn also pledged to put “the people’s interests before ideological fantasies”. Therefore, highlighting the difference in approach between the Labour Party and the Conservatives, which is putting its self-indulgent in fighting before our national interest.
This move shows that it is the Labour Party which is on the side of British business, and so our economy. Business bodies welcomed this move, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and the Institute of Directors, who both said that this was what businesses had been waiting for.
It also demonstrates his commitment to the people of the UK, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and so understanding of how precedence must be given to maintaining the Good Friday Agreement.
With Foreign Security Boris Johnson showing his crass judgement on Tuesday, when he suggested that solving the border issue could be as easy as managing London's congestion, we really need a government which understands the gravity of this situation. Johnson and his buffoonery cannot be trusted.
In constituencies like Winchester and Chandler’s Ford, where 58.9% of us voted for remain, this means that it is the Labour Party which is on our side. Only the Labour Party can deliver a people’s Brexit, which will work in the interest of us all.
