One of the biggest concerns I hear from constituents is problems with cancelled or delayed appointments. This has a huge impact on patients’ lives as they suffer with pain and mobility issues unnecessarily. Even more concerning is the rising number of patients waiting more than 2 weeks for emergency appointments or cancer referrals. Early diagnosis for cancer massively improves outcomes and can literally mean the difference between life and death, so it is so important that we invest in the staff and resources to ensure anyone who needs an appointment can access one quickly. It is a testament to how hard our NHS staff work that they continue to provide world-leading care.

There are now 4.42 million people on an NHS waiting list – more than at any point in it’s history. It’s so important that we give staff and patients our support by voting Labour on the 12th of December to provide all our NHS staff with the resources they need to help patients.

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.”
