Are you worried about the future of our health service?

Have you had problems accessing the right NHS services when you need them?

Do you wish our hardworking doctors and nurses had better resources?

So many people contact me to tell me that the NHS is the most important issue to them and at the heart of their lives.

I have been working hard to make sure that we have urgent treatment now and people are not sent to the other side of Greater Manchester for minor injuries or forced to wait for hours in A&E.

We need people who listen, speak up about what we need here and who come up with solutions. That is why I want to be your next MP and why I led the successful fight to get Specialist Status for Stepping Hill Hospital and battled for a rethink to staffing losses and ward closures.

The NHS is being starved of money and it needs proper funding. I am so proud of the Liberal Democrats’ policy to add a penny on the pound to income tax for the NHS.

Earlier this year I met with senior doctors as well as applying pressure to local health bosses about how we need an Urgent Treatment Centre now and I will keep on fighting.

We need more than just warm words and cynical re-announcements of the same money time and again by the Conservatives – we deserve better, our hardworking NHS staff deserve better and our area deserves better.

Please sign the petition to back my campaign for an Urgent Treatment Centre.
