New analysis shows NHS pushed to the brink by Tory bed cuts – Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on BBC analysis showing many of the most seriously ill patients are waiting for hours on trolleys and in corridors, said:

“The NHS has been pushed to the brink with thousands of patients – often elderly and vulnerable – left languishing on trolleys in corridors for hours upon hours. Years of Tory bed cuts, underfunding and understaffing has taken its toll and patients are paying the price.”
