College of Podiatry General Election Manifesto

College of Podiatry launches it's General Election Manifesto

The College of Podiatry has today launched its five-point 2019 General Election Manifesto.

The General Election on 12 December is an opportunity for the College and its members to influence prospective parliamentary candidates in every constituency. The College wants to ensure that podiatry is high on the political agenda for the next UK Government.

Our manifesto today asks the next Government to:

       
  • Commit to ensuring those who need it have access to NHS Podiatry services that are sufficiently resourced
  •     
  • Increase the NHS Podiatry workforce
  •     
  • Guarantee secure residency for EU nationals across Health and Social Care
  •    
  • Reinstate bursaries for all healthcare students
  •   
  • Ensure mandatory regulation for all clinicians

 

We are asking all of our members to use this document to influence their prospective parliamentary candidates. We are also asking our members to exercise their democratic right to choose who makes up the next government.  

Chief Executive of the College of Podiatry Steve Jamieson said: 'Our five-point manifesto is clear and has been designed to influence prospective parliamentary candidates to help resolve some of the most urgent issues facing the profession of podiatry. We want to ensure that whoever comes to form the next UK Government puts accessing podiatry services, increasing its workforce and reinstating bursaries at the heart of its plans for health care’.
