Molly Scott Cato, the Green Party parliamentary candidate for Bristol West, has pledged her support for frontline NHS staff, as nurses vote in support of strike action. She said: "Nurses have not reached this decision lightly. Almost a decade of pay cuts and massive staff shortages have forced them to this point. I stand in solidarity with nurses and offer them my full support in their decision. Nurses are dangerously overstretched and grossly underpaid."
