Under this Government, nurse numbers have failed to keep pace with demand while more than half of nurses say their ward is dangerously understaffed.

The recruitment of extra nurses could be funded through a Time to Care Fund – raised from a mansion tax on properties over £2 million, cracking down on tax avoidance and a new levy on tobacco firms.

This would help ensure safe staffing in hospitals and provide personalised care outside hospitals, helping transform services so the NHS can meet the care needs of the 21st Century.
