New NHS winter stats – Jonathan Ashworth responds

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health and Social Care Secretary, commenting on the latest weekly winter statistics, said:

“This is an NHS which remains under considerable strain this winter after years of Tory underfunding, chronic staff shortages and wider health and social care cuts.

“While the Tory Government is left reeling and distracted from its Brexit shambles, patients are paying the price.”
