Ministers are attempting to silence NHS staff from telling the truth on No Deal Brexit – Jonathan Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to reports in the Health Service Journal that NHS England must follow government script on Brexit, said:

“It’s staggering that ministers are attempting to silence NHS staff from telling the truth about the disastrous consequences for patients’ health of a no-deal Brexit.

“Boris Johnson is either again trying to mislead patients or is running scared of the implications of his own policy. Matt Hancock should lift this gagging order now.”
