Responding to a warning from the chairman of the British Medical Association's (BMA) GP committee that general practice is on the "brink of collapse," Liberal Democrat Shadow Health Secretary Norman Lamb commented:
“Instead of £350m a week for the NHS, under the Conservatives we’ve seen the health service being gradually run into the ground.
“Patients across the country are struggling to get appointments with their GP - but Theresa May doesn’t care.
“The NHS cannot take five years of a Conservative landslide that would give Theresa May free rein to cut services further at your local hospital.
“The Liberal Democrats offer a brighter future with a penny on income tax to rescue the NHS and care.”
