We are in the middle of one of the worst winter crisis the NHS has ever faced, and yet Conservatives still fail to fund our NHS properly.
This is why we are excited to announce the launch of our NHS Cuts app, which shows you exactly how much your area is set to lose due to underfunding.
Find out how much your local area is set to lose using the app:
The tool reflects how, despite claims of record spending, the Tories have actually been underfunding the NHS in historic terms, and will continue to do so with the plans outlined in their manifesto. Health spending grew at an average 4.1% a year throughout most of the NHS' history - up to 2010 - whereas spending growth was slashed to an average 1.3% a year during the Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition.
The app reveals people in Derbyshire will see their local NHS lose £592m in annual funding by 2023 - which is equivalent to 18,200 nurses or 5400 GP or annual costs for 350 GP surgeries or 580 new MRI machines.
Worst affected is Birmingham and Solihull, where the local NHS will have lost £846m, which is equivalent to 26,000 nurses, 7700 GPs, 500 GP surgeries or 820 MRI machines.
On average, local health services (by area clinical commissioning group) will be £176m worse off, with a total £33bn funding blackhole across England.
Simply enter your postcode and take a look at how badly this Conservative Government has damaged our NHS and will continue to do so if they're re-elected.
(we put in the postcode for the national Keep Our NHS Public office to see how our own services would be affected)
The data for this app was compiled using NHS published data sets for CCGs funding in 2015/16 and allocated funding for 2023/24. You can find out more about how we calculated these figures on the app.
