Lib Dems respond to Health Foundation report on NHS staffing crisis

Responding to a report by the Health Foundation on the severe shortage of nurses facing the NHS, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate Chris Lofts said:

“This report is clear –there are serious NHS staffing gaps. The NHS is under significant pressure and there are serious questions about the quality and safety of care that patients are receiving today. 

“Without doctors and nurses from abroad coming to work in our hospitals, the NHS is sunk.  Yet Boris Johnson's plans for a Nurse Tax would mean EU nurses and other health professionals have to pay to work in the NHS.”

Chris Lofts added: “Either a Conservative Brexit or a Labour Brexit would make the staffing crisis worse by driving away the EU health professionals we need.
Liberal Democrats are calling for another referendum on Brexit.

Liberal Democrats want better support for our NHS workforce, introduce an NHS recruitment strategy and invest £7 billion a year in health and social care.”
