Shazu's Plan to Improve the NHS

Concerns about the NHS are regularly brought up by many residents in the Wyre Forest and according to the survey being carried out by the Liberal Democrats in thhe Wyre Forest.

Repeated stories in the media about staff shortages – over 130,000 in the NHS nationally - have added to people’s worries, as is the ever-increasing waiting list for operations of over seven million. Despite your concerns, the Conservative Government have been slow to act.
Besides the staffing problems there are delays in discharging people from hospital, even though there is no medical reason for them to stay. This leads to delays in admitting patients, leading to queues of ambulances for Accident and Emergency, which again leads to delays in ambulances answering 999 calls.

Shazu's plan for the NHS

The Liberal Democrat Fair Deal includes:

✅ Accessible GP Services: Ensuring everyone can see their GP within seven days, or within 24 hours if urgent, investing in the training, recruitment, and retention of GPs and freeing up more of their time.

✅ Overhauling NHS Dentistry: Ending the rise in “dental deserts” by improving the availability of NHS appointments and eliminating the burden of private care costs, both of which are leading to people performing DIY dentistry - with devastating outcomes.

✅ Boosting Cancer Survival Rates: Establishing a legal right for cancer patients to start treatment within two months of an urgent referral.

✅ Healthcare Workforce Strengthening: Recruiting, training, and retaining more doctors and nurses.

✅ Tackling the Ambulance Crisis: Addressing the life-threatening response times in our ambulance services including by providing emergency funding.

✅ Fixing the Social Care Crisis: Carers should be properly paid and valued for the essential, skilled work they do. Everyone deserves high-quality social care if they need it. We’ll be covering our full plan for social care in an upcoming edition of our ‘For a Fair Deal’ series.
