Jonathan Ashworth responds to Greater Manchester death rate

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to Greater Manchester coronavirus death rate, said:

“Years of Tory cuts deepened avoidable inequalities leaving communities especially vulnerable when the pandemic hit with tragic consequences.

“It’s now urgent an overarching funded strategy is put in place to tackle health inequalities and support people to live healthier, happier, longer lives.”
