The Put patients first: Back general practice campaign

We use our GP practice a great deal.  I’ve been there today and I’ll be back on Friday.  At times, it’s like a second home in that one of the family may be there any day of the week.  What we find is an excellent service.  But we know that they’re under pressure.

To quote: ‘The Put patients first: Back general practice campaign is demanding that the governments of the UK increase funding for general practice from an historic low of 8.39% to 11% of the UK NHS budget by 2017.

Ive no doubt that healthcare will be an issue at the general election.  Figures are going to be produced that proves any point a politician may wish to make.

That isn’t the whole story though.  We need to decide what the NHS means to us as part of the fabric that holds us together, then campaign for it.

We MUST defend the NHS against privatisation, splits and most of all, career politicians who are out of their depth being in charge of this great national jewel.  It’s OUR NHS.  Please take a look at the website below, some of it I find shocking.
