"I've seen first hand how the NHS is being run. There is real pressure on the front line and it seems that people are being sent to A&E because they can't see their GP. It seems as though you have to plan on being ill, getting a GP appointment is incredibly difficult. We need more doctors and we need to embrace the modern world, why can't we move to a system where qualified pharmacists have a qualified doctor on video link and assess, triage and treat minor ailments all in one place? We need efficiency and common sense."
"I chose to stand for the SDP because they are a party that has it's finger on the pulse of modern world issues."
