We are very proud of our NHS. Providing quality health care to anyone who needs it. But the Covid-19 pandemic has shown us that the healthcare system is not bulletproof. The 2008 economic crash has lead to less money being spent on healthcare. Therefore lessening the capacity of the NHS.
To us it is unacceptable that people in need have to wait for hours for an ambulance or to be seen by professionals. For sure in times of crisis.
Volt wants more funding for our NHS, which could be used to modernize medical care and to fund new research to improve overall health.
Awareness should be raised for both physical and mental health as they are equally important. The stigma around mental problems must be reduced to provide happier lives for everyone.
