South Gloucestershire Liberal Democrats have launched a petition calling upon the Conservative Government to increase funding for our overstretched NHS. This comes after the news that local NHS managers are having to consider restricting IVF eligibility to women aged 30-35, in order to help close the local NHS funding gap of £80 million a year.
Lib Dem Prospective MP for Thornbury & Yate, Claire Young said: “This is just the latest example of our local NHS being chronically overstretched. The reality is that more cuts of this kind will soon be on the way unless the Conservatives end the black hole in the NHS budget. We’ve launched a petition calling on the Government to increase health funding so that NHS managers can concentrate on how to improve services rather than on how to cut them."
If you agree, please sign the petition below and share with others you think would support us.
We, the undersigned, call on the Conservative government to increase funding to the NHS to ensure that the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset CCGs are able to fully-fund vital services in line with national guidelines.
