  • Giving everyone the right to see a GP within seven days, or within 24 hours if they urgently need to, with 8,000 more GPs to deliver on it.

  • Guarantee access to an NHS dentist for everyone needing urgent and emergency care, ending DIY dentistry and ‘dental deserts’.

  • Boost cancer survival rates and introduce a guarantee for 100% of patients to start treatment for cancer within 62 days from urgent referral.

The Liberal Democrat manifesto will also include a plan to overhaul the water industry and tackle sewage pollution, a dedicated mental health professional in every primary and secondary school and a return to community policing including a new Burglary Response Guarantee to tackle unsolved crimes.

Attending the launch in London, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Mid Sussex, Alison Bennett said: “Families and pensioners across Mid Sussex are fed up with being taken for granted by the Conservative Party.

“Every vote for the Liberal Democrats at this election is a vote to elect a strong local champion who will fight every day for our NHS and care.

People desperately want change - from fixing our health and care services to returning to proper community policing - and the Liberal Democrats have a plan to make our community a better place.

“The Liberal Democrats are fighting for local people and giving communities the change they want.”
