The state of the National Health Service is one issue that appears to be growing in importance as the election campaign heats up, especially in light of last week's cyber attack.
A few of the most recent opinion polls have put the NHS at the top of the list of voters' concerns, with many worried about growing waiting lists and plunging staff morale.
We put the subject to a panel of local politicians who outlined their solutions for how they would protect the future of our health service.
- Richard Bacon (Conservative)
- Clive Lewis (Labour)
- Norman Lamb (Liberal Democrats)
- Pete Reeve (UKIP)
- The state of the NHS in our region
Before the debate, we showed the panel a report featuring the views of people currently working on the frontline in the health service.
