Our economy – and our nation’s future – is built on the hard work of families like those across the Wirral.

''Helping make work pay is central to our plan to building a stronger economy, one where we make sure everyone who works can afford to live” said Alison McGovern.

We will raise the minimum wage to £8 and reward companies that sign up to pay a living wage with a business rates and tax cut.

We will back those companies that help build a fairer economy.

And for 24 million working people who are feeling the cost of living crisis, we will cut income tax by bringing back the 10p income tax rate.

Making sure all work pays a decent wage will make our economy stronger.

On Wirral our economy is supported by small businesses. We will make it easier to start and grow businesses.

We’ll create a British investment bank that will lend money to new and growing businesses and we'll support small businesses by cutting business rates for 1.5 million small firms and freezing their energy bills.

Wirral hospitals are struggling under record pressure as thousands of patients arrive at A&E having failed to get an appointment with their family doctor, an official NHS England survey revealed.

And Health Watchdog Monitor has placed Arrowe Park on “the critical list” by launching an investigation into the finances of the Wirral University Hospital Trust that manages it.

Labour’s Wirral South candidate Alison McGovern said “In Wirral, around 1300 people went to an A&E department when they could not get to see a local GP – an increase of more than 20% over last year. Patients can’t get appointments with local doctors and are turning to hospital emergency departments as a last resort.”

The survey showed one in four patients waits a week or more for an appointment after the Government’s decision to abolish the 48-hour appointment guarantee after the last election.

Adding: “Many of my constituents have shared their frustration with me about having to phone their GP surgery day after day for an appointment only to be disappointed. But sadly too many people are forced to give up and go to A&E.''

“Labour’s promise to re-instate the 48-hour appointment guarantee, abolished by the Tories, and recruit 8,000 more doctors and 20,000 nurses nationally will make a difference at Arrowe Park and doctor’s surgeries across Wirral.” pledged Alison.
