Delivering better healthcare: spending more on the NHS

Life expectancy and health problems for people in Walsall North are lagging behind the national averages. This isn't good enough, we have much more to do.

Eddie will fight to ensure NHS spending increases by a minimum of £8 billion in real terms over the next five years. Thats an increase in health spending for each one of us.

We are committed to making GP services accessible seven days a week so you get to see a doctor when you need a doctor, helping to take the pressures off the hospital Accident & Emergency.

We need to ensure that mental health provision is improved, so we will recruit upto 10,000 more mental health professionals.

People at the end of their lives should be treated with dignity and a high quality of care. We need to ensure that health care and social care works better together.
