Ashworth responds to report that NHS has been made “seriously financially unstable”

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to the NAO’s report on NHS government funding, said:

“This is yet another damning report which shows that ten years of Conservative under-funding and under-resourcing is damaging the NHS, leaving trusts in the red and CCGs unable to balance the books.

“If we are to start driving down waiting lists, improving performance in A&E and driving down GP waiting times, the Government needs to fully fund our NHS and social care. The ever lengthening queues of the sick and elderly in our constituencies deserve so much better.”
