Jonathan Ashworth responds to latest weekly performance report from NHS England

Jonathan Ashworth, Labour’s Shadow Health and Social Care secretary, responding to the latest weekly performance report from NHS England, said:

“Experts warned that the NHS was likely to see the worst winter on record, and today’s figures show that our hospitals are already under pressure just as winter has started to bite.

“The Tories have the great responsibility of fixing the crisis in the NHS which ten years of their underfunding has created. Boris Johnson has an 80 seat majority – he has no excuse for not getting a grip of this NHS crisis and putting patients first.”
