The NHS remains one of Labour’s greatest accomplishes in government , a real “national treasure” and an goodwill ambassador across the world for the success of healthcare in the public sector.
For us it is a source of pride, and for every opponent abroad who scorns the NHS as “socialised medicine” – scores more say instead, “ We wish we had it here “
It is a system to be envied – founded on the principle of free at the point of use with comprehensive coverage of the entire population.
Our everlasting thanks goes to NHS staff for their hard work and dedication particularly in these difficult times.
Where would be without the NHS?
