I will be in the NHS march tomorrow in London because it is an opportunity for me to show how much I believe in our health service, which was founded in the year I was born.

The NHS has always been there for me and my family, and we have always had first-class health care - my worry is that the next generation will have the paramedic feeling for their credit card before feeling for their pulse.

It would be great if you could come and march this Saturday to make it clear that we don’t accept the lies that we’ve been fed that we can’t afford the NHS.

“Illness is neither an indulgence for which people have to pay, nor an offence for which they should be penalised, but a misfortune, the cost of which should be shared by the community” - Aneurin Bevan, founder of the NHS
