Stop Brown's NHS Cuts

Gordon Brown's financial mismanagement of the NHS has led to widespread cuts to NHS services across the country, including:
  • 18,000 jobs cut from NHS hospitals (Royal College of Nursing Press Release, 16 August 2006).
  • Hospitals – large and small - facing cutbacks and closure.
  • Trainee doctors and nurses facing unemployment.
In Chester, we have seen 53 beds close; loss of specialist nurses; cuts to respite care budget and a Digital Retinopathy Programme scrapped, to name just some cuts. Enough is enough.

We believe the NHS is a number one priority, so we are having a national campaign to put pressure on the government to stop the NHS cuts.
