NHS should never be up for sale – Jonathan Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to the Government’s clarification on protections for the NHS in future trade deals, said:

“Our NHS should never be up for sale. That’s not something you just forget. Theresa May’s comments today exposed the Tories’ shaky commitment to our NHS in the quest to cosy up to Donald Trump. Clearly the British public can’t trust our public health service with a flip-flopping Prime Minister and a party that has spent almost eight years running down our health service.”
