@NHS Quote on twitter

"A vote for this government is a vote against the NHS

Do you trust Theresa May? Or do you trust your doctors, nurses, teachers and police officers"?

What do you think, is this true?

Chris Bryant, the MP for Rhondda, won the ballot to put forward his choice of Private Member bill - he set up an on-line survey to choose from six options.

The two which came top both in his constituency and generally were :-
to make it an offence to assault a member of the Emergency Services when carrying out their duties,
and one regarding the families of refugees being reunited.

He made the ballot a multiple choice so he did not get silly ideas.

I saw that, Welshwife, and voted for that one.
It sounds like it will get crossparty support and get through anyway, which is excellent news.

Do you still believe the Tories are not privatising the NHS?

Which means the NHS is being given 3bn less than the government says it needs.

This is not the best way for NHS money to be spent.

Most of it went to the big four accountancy firms, who obviously know a lot about health and social care.

anyone who trusts the tories with the NHS is a fool ,they'll sell it off to their pals ...already are and we'll end up with a substandard service and an "american" style insurance ...thats one that only works for folk who can afford it.WHY do people vote for these MP's who have only their own interests at heart and not the wider public

There's a scrapthecap rally in Parliament Square next Wednesday if anyone is interested, in support of nurses.

GPs have been leaving the NHS at a rate of 400 a month.
We'll need far more doctors than they are willing to pay for.

Another privatisation that doesn't work.

Do i trust theresa may with the nhs, no, of course i dont. Its being bled dry and sold off to private organisations who are in it to make a profit fir themselves, not to put anything back into the pot.

The latest.
We'll be told to ask our neighbours about our symptoms next.

Well done that MP, showing how much you care for the NHS and the staff that might look after you if you ever have to use it.

I don't trust him, either, with the NHS. Unfortunately, May seems to.
