Motion text

That this House expresses its concern at the crisis unfolding in the National Health Service (NHS); notes that every ambulance service in England has declared critical incident status; further notes that staff shortages have been reported in hospitals across the country; understands that the spike in the number of covid-19 cases is putting additional strain on the health service due to the increased number of patients and staff absences; recognises that the hard working and dedicated NHS staff are committed to the highest quality of care but lack the resources and capacity they need; believes the present crisis is the result of underfunding and mismanagement of the NHS by the Government; calls on the Government to take immediate action to mobilise all the resources at their disposal to address the crisis in the NHS; and demands the Government increases the NHS budget to reflect the post-covid world, halts damaging privatisation and provides the overworked NHS staff with an inflation-proof pay rise.
