The devastating poll reveals reasons people missed work in the past year include:
This stark finding from a new Liberal Democrat poll does not surprise Dan Boatright -Greene, the Lib Dems Parliamentary Candidate for West Worcestershire. He has been hearing local people's concerns on delayed access to NHS and dentistry services for many months..“More people than ever are in pain and limbo waiting for appointments and routine surgery instead of being at work, often sick with worry about repeat prescription costs on top of rising bills. It’s a worry for employers too. When talent is laid up, business and the economy suffer.” says Dan.
"The Conservatives have failed to show the same dedication and support to the NHS as its hard-pressed staff have done” added Dan. “The Liberal Democrats would train and recruit more GPs and improve access to NHS dental services by improving the dentists' contracts so no one is forced to pay hundreds for private care or miss potentially life-saving mouth screening,"
"Liberal Democrats believe in improving access to the NHS so supporting people back into work quicker - not simply threatening withdrawal of benefits like the Conservatives.. A healthier workforce can deliver a healthier economy. to pay for needed improvements in the NHS."
