Jonathan Ashworth responds to the Conservatives’ GPs announcement

Jonathan Ashworth, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on the Conservatives’ GPs announcement, said:

“You can’t trust the Tories with our NHS.

“They always make election promises which they fail to deliver on. Tory ministers promised us 5,000 extra GPs but in fact we have lost 1600 GPs under the Tories.

“After years of starving the NHS of cash, it’s got harder and harder to get a GP appointment under the Tories.

“Labour will invest more in family doctor services and train more GPs to deliver millions of extra appointments.”
