Green Party response to Keir Starmer’s speech on the future of the NHS


22 May 2023

Responding to Labour leader Keir Starmer’s speech on the NHS [1], co-leader of the Green Party Carla Denyer said:

“Starmer claims that it’s not all about the money, but years of underfunding is the key challenge facing the NHS. More reorganisation and target setting will simply be rearranging the beds in the corridor. Staff shortages and recruitment problems can only be seriously addressed by offering NHS staff a pay rise in line with inflation. 

“The Green Party will unashamedly go after the super-rich who have seen their wealth surge in recent years [2]. By increasing their taxes, we can ensure NHS staff are properly paid and that the years of underfunding of our NHS is addressed.”
