NHS funding: tell us where it hurts

MiP is encouraging members to talk about their personal experiences managing NHS services under financial pressure. Craig Ryan explains the thinking behind the new campaign and talks to two groups of managers at the sharp end of NHS funding cuts.

To win the argument for better NHS funding we need to talk about people, not just statistics. We need to talk about patients and the services they rely on, and about the NHS staff who do their best to deliver quality care however tough it gets.
