NHS finances are in crisis, and with less money to go around, life-saving local services are left with no option but to cut back hours or worse, close down.

Ed Miliband will want to make an announcement at next week’s party conference. A big petition telling him that funding the NHS is a vote winner could help tip him the right way.
