Labour today announces that it will abolish hospital car parking fees that will benefit thousands of people who pay to park at Derriford hospital.
People are waiting longer and longer for a GP appointment in Plymouth. NHS staff are doing a superb job but we can't go on asking them to do more and more with less and less.
Last night’s debate showed that David Cameron cannot win a majority because he cannot defend his record on living standards, the NHS or immigration. That is why many people are worried that the Tories are preparing to do a deal with UKIP.
The Tories have repeatedly refuses to rule it out; it is what the Tory party wants.
Apart or together, the Tories and UKIP won’t stand up for working people. The terms of a deal have already been set: they have a shared agenda to increase privatisation in the health service, which would destroy the NHS as we know it.

This week I've received dozens and dozens of emails from people asking for me to support Clive Efford's NHS Bill to protect the NHS and scrap NHS privatisation.
I'm proud to support this Bill.

The good news: Clive Efford's Bill to stop NHS privatisation received enough votes on Friday to pass to the next stage in Parliament.
The bad news: our Tory MP failed to show up to vote. Instead of he was getting his car cleaned tweeting this.
The NHS is in crisis. People in Plymouth are waiting longer for operations and to be seen by their GP. NHS services are being privatised and a whopping £3bn has been diverted from frontline care to pay for an expensive and dangerous NHS reorganisation no one voted for. It is time the Government realised that it is their medicine that is killing the NHS - it is time to stop the Tory NHS privatisation.
