    Article: Apr 21, 2020

    Day after day, our NHS and care staff are putting their lives at risk to keep us safe and care for the critically ill, suffering from coronavirus.

    Working long shifts, often isolated from their families, the sacrifices they are making for us all during this pandemic are incredible.

    Yet alarmingly, many aren't getting the support they need. The Government is failing too many NHS and care staff, especially on personal protective equipment (PPE) and testing for coronavirus.

    That's why Liberal Democrats are calling for a comprehensive support package for frontline workers - to give them the support and recognition they deserve.

    Will you back our call for a new support package for NHS and care staff? Add your name now:

    Big news on an Eastern Relief road
