Weston’s Labour Party took to the town centre at the weekend to protest against the amount of funding the NHS and social care system receives from the Government.

It has been widely reported in the Mercury and across the national press that the NHS is ‘stretched’, with resources and money at a minimum but demand continually increasing.

Labour Party members petitioned people in High Street and they said they had a ‘positive’ response.

Group spokesman, John Cadwallader, said: “We had a very positive response from the public. Many praised the NHS for the excellent care they had received in the past but many more were concerned how standards had slipped dramatically.”
