WE SPEAK AS ONE VOICE: To save lives, we need emergency funds now to make up for an annual deficit of around £35bn. We must recruit and retain more frontline staff and pay them properly. In the future, we need a return to a fully publicly funded and provided national health service, protected from private companies who put profit before patients.
