Responding to Labour's announcement on NHS funding today, LiberalDemocrat Shadow Health Secretary Norman Lamb said:
"You cannot solve the crisis in our NHS and social care services by simply imposing more top-down targets on staff and plucking numbers out of thin air.
"The Liberal Democrats are the only party with a fully costed plan to deliver £6bn more per year for the NHS and social care by putting a penny on income tax.
"This is a plan endorsed by senior health experts including the former head of NHS England David Nicholson.
“We will be honest with the public that giving the NHS and social care the funding they need will mean us all chipping in a little more."
