Conservative cuts leave hospitals full, and patients waiting for treatment. Patients face cancelled operations and long delays at A&E as the NHS struggles through another winter crisis.
In the last six weeks of 2017, 825 ambulances were forced to wait outside Kingston, St George's, and St Helier & Epsom hospitals for at least 30 minutes - many over an hour. Hospital beds at Kingston and St George's hospitals were nearly full for most of late November and December.
Local Lib Dem campaigner Simon McGrath said:
"Hospital staff are doing an incredible job but they have been let down by a Conservative Government that is not giving the NHS the support it needs. Only the Lib Dems have a plan to give the NHS and social care the extra cash they desperately need by putting a penny on income tax.
"Local Liberal Democrats will continue to fight for investment in our local health and care services, including much needed investment at St Helier, the return of a 7-day-a-week GP 'walk-in' service in Merton and good quality social care for those who need it."
