The future of an NHS in crises


-->
The Tories NHS announcement has unravelled within hours. They've no idea how to pay for their plans – and it has now emerged that David Cameron himself said this approach would "wreck our NHS."
You can't fund the NHS on an IOU, and you can't trust the Tories on the NHS.
We are seeing a desperate Tory campaign, every day making panicky promises with no idea how they will be paid for.
Nobody will believe a word of their claims on the NHS because they still can't say where the money would come from.
David Cameron said himself that kind of approach would "wreck our NHS".
You can't fund the NHS on an IOU.
The truth is their extreme cuts plans – doubling the cuts next year from this - means that they can't protect the NHS. Other countries that have tried to make cuts on this scale have ended up cutting their health services.
And the NHS is at the back of the waiting list under the Tories, behind the £10 billion of unfunded tax cuts they've already made.

Only Labour has a fully-funded plan to raise £2.5bn – over and above Tory plans – to invest in the NHS to recruit 20,000 more nurses and 8,000 more GPs – paid for by a mansion tax on properties over £2m, tackling tax avoidance and a levy on the tobacco companies.
You can't trust the Tories on the NHS. They broke their promises in this Parliament and they will do it again.
