The Conservatives are trying to claim that our NHS is not in crisis but these are four posts received from residents in High Peak over the weekend about the state of our NHS locally.

Nurses are being offered £30 an hour to work on Saturday or £40 an hour on Sunday to try and alleviate the pressure running up to an election. This is not something that normally happens in our hospitals.

The Conservatives are trying to paper over the cracks in our NHS but it’s the staff who are picking up the pieces and the patients who are feeling the strain. This is why we need proper investment in our NHS.

“Tameside and Glossop CCG have had to take out £54.8m from their spending plans over the last 3 years and will need to remove a further £43m over the next 3 years in order to balance the budget.”

Ruth George, Labour's Champion for High Peak

“There has never been such a huge difference between the political parties and the future they offer. I want people in High Peak to know that there is a better alternative than a government which is about to close nearly 20 hospitals, cut £3 billion from our schools, plunge over 4 million working families into poverty through their harsh cuts to Universal Credit and refuses to rule out cuts to pension increases or higher tax and national insurance. In contrast, I will promote Labour’s message of long-term investment in public services, fairness for working people, and decent support for pensioners and those who cannot work.”
