- The quality of local NHS hospitals and GP services is the top local issue for Sheffield Hallam constituents with 45% saying this issue affected them and their families the most. This is followed by employment opportunities (15%) and the quality of local schools and higher education (12%).
- Almost two thirds (64%) of Sheffield Hallam residents oppose the inclusion of the NHS in the US-EU trade deal known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). 17% support its inclusion and 19% don’t know.
- A majority (61%) of constituents think David Cameron should seek to exclude the NHS from the deal while 15% say he should not and 24% don’t know.
