Both Gerald Vernon-Jackson, Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Portsmouth South, and Darren Sanders, Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Portsmouth North, have signed the RCN’s Pledge to be a Nursing Champion ahead of the General Election on 8th June.
The RCN’s Nursing Pledge is part of the campaign which calls on all political parties to improve, value and invest in nursing by supporting the RCN’s Nursing Counts Manifesto.
Gerald Vernon-Jackson commented:
“The Nursing Counts Manifesto highlights the need to seriously invest in the NHS, and nursing in particular, that’s why the Liberal Democrats will put an extra £6billion into the NHS and social care funded by an extra penny on income tax.”
