The unusually mild weather has made for cheerful canvassing throughout South Thanet in recent weeks. Labour members regularly join our parliamentary candidate Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt in canvassing communities throughout the constituency. Labour is keen to hear from local residents what issues concern them, what they want from the next Labour government and what they want to see happening locally.
Unsurprisingly, the NHS is often raised on the doorstep. People are angry and concerned about the loss of local services and what they see as a service on its knees through cuts and privatisation. The NHS is valued by all and we regularly hear NHS staff being praised for doing the most amazing work in the most difficult of circumstances. It’s easy to agree with people that we need a properly funded NHS that can continue to deliver the best care for all. Labour established the NHS and continues to pledge the finances, the healthcare professionals and the resources needed to ensure a world-class healthcare system.
Rebecca and her team are keen to hear your views on how Labour can build a stronger, fairer Britain and a stronger, fairer Thanet.
