Responding to the claim by senior members of the Brexit campaign that there would be more money for the NHS were the UK to leave Europe, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “It’s nonsense to say there would be more money for the NHS were the UK to vote to leave Europe in June.
“These are the same politicians whose government has strangled the NHS of funds over the past six years, and caused its current recruitment and retention crisis.
“There’s no reason to believe the same hostile conditions wouldn’t continue under Brexit. The political and economic turmoil that would result from the UK going it alone would hit jobs, living standards and public services hard.
