Campaigners in Cumbria took part in a nationwide day of action today in protest over the running and funding of the NHS.
They gathered in Carlisle City centre earlier to share their view that the government is failing to provide the service with enough financial support.
"The conditions the staff are working under are really hard and I think what breaks my heart is that all of the doctors and all of the nurses and all of the other health care staff really care passionately about delivering the best health care service that they can to their patients.
"But they are having their hands tied behind their back at the moment by the lack of funding."
The campaigners accused the government of not providing enough funding for the winter. A claim the Department for Health refuted.
"We know the NHS is extremely busy, which is why the Government supported it this winter with an additional £437million of funding, and why it was given top priority in the recent Budget with an extra £2.8bn allocated over the next two years.
"Despite the extra pressure that comes with winter, the most recently published monthly figures shows hardworking staff treated 55,328 people within four hours every single day - 1,272 more each day than in the same month the previous year.”
