Labour's parliamentary candidate for Windsor spoke at her party's national conference in Manchester.
Fiona Dent, who lives in Holyport, made a speech in conference's health debate on Wednesday.
At the conference she called for the government to repeal attempts to 'privatise' the NHS through the Health and Social Care Act.
She explained that while out canvassing in Ascot she met a 70-year-old man who was told he would have to seek private healthcare to pay for his cataract operation.
She said: "That is not the kind of country I want to live in."
The former NHS employee recently undertook a 300 mile march from Tyneside to Westminster to protest the Health and Social Care Act.
Supporters of the reforms say they will improve efficiency.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
