Justin Madders responds to Royal College of Physicians report indicating doctors are ‘running on empty’

Justin Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to a report from the Royal College of Physicians that indicates doctors are ‘running on empty,’ said:

“This is the latest confirmation that our NHS workforce have gone above and beyond the call of duty for over a year now and at some point they are going to need to take a proper break.

“The NHS came into the pandemic with a record 100,000 vacancies and a workforce already stretched to the limit.

“It’s time Government listened to these warnings put in place a strategy to protect the people that make the NHS what it is.”
