What are the five breaking points?

A new government must:

  1. Brexit - act now to provide certainty to NHS staff from EU countries

  2. Public health - tackle ongoing crisis

  3. NHS funding - match or exceed leading European economies

  4. General practice - deliver on commitment to stabilise

  5. NHS pressures - address the pressures with immediate investment
