Jonathan Ashworth responds to proposed reforms to NHS and social care

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to proposed reforms to the NHS and social care, said:

“Boris Johnson must explain why a reorganisation in the midst of the biggest crisis the NHS has ever faced is his pressing priority.

“With 192,000 patients now waiting over a year for treatment, our cancer survival rates shamefully low by European standards and mental health services stretched to the limits, Ministers need to outline how an NHS reorganisation at this point in time will deliver the standards of care patients deserve.”
