Health and well-being
Questions have been asked about our statement on health and care workers in ‘Labour’s policies and priorities for Desborough’.
‘We will campaign for investment in our health service and fair pay for health and care workers. They deserve more than a clap in the street and a slap in the face from the government’.
- The NHS and Adult Social Care services have taken on greater prominence during the current pandemic and people are aware of the many issues that affect these services – recruitment, retention, investment, remuneration, protective equipment, etc.
- The new North Northamptonshire Council will have a significant role in Adult Social Care.
- The record shows that the majority of voters are influenced by national rather that local issues when it comes to local elections.
There is no doubt that the Town Council will have very little influence in such matters but we felt it reasonable to state where we stand as a local party.
