NHS: Budget Tomorrow
By Becca McCarthy
In just 48 hours, Chancellor Philip Hammond will announce what the government will spend money on next year.  He could decide to give the NHS the money it desperately needs. 
But he’ll only do it if he knows the public expect him to. 187,000 people have already signed the petition demanding more money for our NHS. Tomorrow, the petition will be delivered straight to Philip Hammond’s door.
This is the last chance we’ll get to ask for more NHS funding in the budget. Will you add your name to the petition before it’s delivered?
