18664146_118144898763443_8108804404216028234_n.jpgI was contacted by a Broxtowe resident this week who works as a GP and wanted to talk about the immense demands currently on GP services. His words were "I've never been so worried about the current state or future of our NHS." That sentence sums up exactly my feelings too.

The blatant lies of the Leave campaign, fronted by our Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, promised us £350m per week for the NHS. The Tory manifesto reins this in to a more modest £8bn commitment, but where this is coming from is anyone's guess in their uncosted proposition. The Chair of the British Medical Association went as far as describing the Tory offer as "smoke and mirrors".

After years of pay cuts, austerity and privatisation by stealth under the Tories our beloved NHS is in crisis. Our own Queens Medical Centre has been on 'black alert' already this month. Tory Councillors on Nottinghamshire County Council voted against a motion to increase funding for social care. Young people from Broxtowe are having to travel as far as Scotland to receive mental health treatment. Health Visitor services in Broxtowe are being cut, removing vital support from parents and young children.

It's become a choice between the Conservatives or the NHS.

Having both is not an option.

The Conservatives or the NHS - we can't have both

Had an absolutely brilliant day at the Bilborough College "Mock Election" today. Many thanks to the organisers for the invite and hospitality. Don't tell me that young people don't care about politics. The students were engaged, articulate and did their college proud in asking all the candidates (or their representatives) testing questions on key issues such as tuition fees, competition in education and the importance of performing arts subjects in the curriculum. Many students of course live in Broxtowe and I would encourage all of those who are eligible to vote to do so, and those who aren't registered to vote to register as soon as possible.

Stalls in Beeston and Kimberley, hundreds of doors knocked on across Beeston and Stapleford, training sessions for women, folding thousands of leaflets, hundreds of social media posts and not to forget a warm welcome at the Salvation Army in Stapleford - and all that in just one day! Our volunteers from Team Broxtowe Labour are speaking to hundreds of people across Broxtowe who are looking for a positive alternative.

Tomorrow - lots more of the same, with the addition of our big rally in Kimberley with Paul Mason kicking things off...

To all the volunteers getting involved in any way, a very big thank you. If you'd like to get involved just drop me a line. Together, we can make a difference in Broxtowe.
