Adam Dance Slams Tories Over The National Health Service.
Adam Dance, the hard-working Councillor for South Petherton & Islemoor and the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the forthcoming General Election seeking to return the Yeovil constituency to Lib Dem hands, has slammed the Government and the Conservative Party over the state of the National Health Service in his region of Somerset.
Thankfully, the quick-thinking staff at the Quicksilver Mail saved the pensioner’s life.
Now Adam Dance has hit out at the Conservatives in the latest press release, slamming the Tory Government, including the current local MP Marcus Fysh.
Fysh has failed to comment on the 81-year-old’s plight despite being asked.
Dance, in the meantime, appears to have come out fighting for the NHS cause, stating:
“Yet again, the Conservatives have prioritised tax cuts for the better off rather than improving the health services available to Somerset residents.’
Now Dance is urging residents to sign his Campaign calling for urgent action, which demands
A guarantee to be able to see a GP within seven days;
The training of more dentists to make access to NHS dentistry freely available once again and
The publication of waiting times for local ambulances.
Dance says these would address some residents’ concerns about receiving the medical care and attention they deserve together.
In the full press release, furious Dance says:
“Yet again, the Conservatives have prioritised tax cuts for the better off rather than improving the health services available to Somerset residents.
“Will you help me add pressure on the health secretary and our local MP to address the serious situation in South Somerset? Gett, ing a GP appointment within a week or access to an NHS dentist, even for a child, is almost impossible. Please support my Campaign and add your voice to these concerns. I will never stop fighting for our NHS; it is a matter of life or death.”
The recent Autumn Statement intends to reduce National Insurance payments, which benefit the better-paid more than those on the minimum wage. It fails to address the difficulties faced today by the NHS. The welfare state is funded through national insurance payments to protect the economic and social well-being of the public. We are returning to a system where if you can afford to pay for private treatment, all is well and good; if not, access to health services is complicated, which can have life-changing consequences.
