As reported in the Barnsley Chronicle on 13th July, Stephanie recently visited Barnsley hospital to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS.
Commenting, Stephanie said:
“The NHS is Labour’s proudest achievement, guided by the belief that all citizens, regardless of where they were born and regardless of their wealth, should have access to healthcare, free at the point of access.
“I want to pay tribute to our dedicated NHS staff and all who’ve come before them.
“They are the lifeblood of our health service, and whenever I meet them I’m humbled by their skill, professionalism and dedication. Thank you to all our NHS staff for all that you do all year round.
“As we mark 70 years of our NHS, let’s celebrate our health service, and renew our commitment to defending an NHS that’s universal and free at the point of access.”
