Until I retired last month, I worked at North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust and I was horrified to read the Tory candidate’s claims that he had ‘saved the hospital’. His party is slowly strangling the NHS through cuts. Many of our hospital staff are finding they are either being made redundant or being down-graded to save money. There will be another round of cuts imposed this year, if nothing changes.
I believe there is a better alternative offered by the party who founded the NHS. Louise Baldock is committed to the NHS and a local hospital in Stockton. I can see that she cares for people and knows that health is important for wellbeing. That is why I will be voting for Louise Baldock and Labour.
