Today is the 69th anniversary of the day the NHS was created. The provision of free healthcare for all, regardless of the ability to pay is one of Labour’s greatest achievements but after 7 years under Tory-led Governments, the NHS faces some of its toughest times.
Lilian said "I'm continually impressed by the dedication of our NHS staff, who treat people with great care and compassion even when working under intense pressure.
As politicians we need not just to acknowledge the incredible work of our NHS, but also ensure it has the resources it needs now and in the future.
Happy Birthday NHS.
