The last Tory Government failed to support the NHS properly and now the Tories are refusing to commit to protecting and caring for our pensioners and those in need of support. We all love the NHS and admire and value its caring staff; the NHS has been there for many of us in times of need and it is sometimes all too easy to take its role in our lives for granted.

But our NHS is now under daily attack by the Tory squeeze on its finances. A squeeze that leads to a service cut here and an outsource to the private sector there - this is privatisation by stealth and it has to be stopped.

 Tory cuts mean that in this area, and right across the country, the pressure on the NHS is increasing - not just in high profile places like A&E at the RBH, but also at your local GP surgery where waiting times for appointments are climbing. Cuts are affecting mental healthcare too with many mental health patients, especially young people, waiting months to access the treatment they need.

 Labour will stop the stealth privatisation of the NHS, invest in the service and ensure that NHS staff are properly paid to help prevent the exodus of doctors and nurses from the service.

 A Labour Government would also ensure that local and national government and the support services worked together on health and social care policy so that the sick and disabled, young and old can be cared for, and treated fairly thanks to a joined-up system of hospitals, care homes & care at home.

MATT RODDA – STANDING UP FOR THE MANY, NOT THE FEW - It’s time for change in Reading East

It's time to elect an MP who will be a strong voice for Reading East in Westminster, rather than act as the voice of the Government and Westminster in our community.

It's time to elect an MP who will stand up for local people and campaign hard for the things that matter to families in Reading East - investment in the NHS, in our schools, and in starter homes for young families.

In the 2015 General Election, Matt made up great ground on our sitting Tory MP and is well placed to make the move into first place. Reading voted Remain in last year’s referendum, but the hard Brexit being pursued by the Conservatives is seen as a step too far even for many of those who voted Leave.

Only Labour can beat the Tories in Reading East. And only Labour can stop the Tories handing over the NHS to their friends in the private health sector; starving our schools of finance; protecting rich landlords while reducing the stock of affordable housing; turning a blind eye to the tax avoidance of the fat-cats and global corporations; and destroying the jobs and livelihoods of millions of ordinary families with a hard, no deal, Brexit that could leave this country isolated.

Vote Matt Rodda and Labour to be a strong voice in Westminster for Reading East; and to stand up for our community.
