The confusion about the Conservatives’ claims on extra nurses shows you can’t trust them with NHS – Jonathan Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to confusion surrounding the Conservatives’ claims they will recruit 50,000 more nurses in the NHS, said:

“This latest confusion about the Conservatives’ claims on extra nurses shows you can’t trust them with our NHS.

“Nicky Morgan said they would be delivered over 10 years and she couldn’t explain how the Tories will retain overstretched nurses working in today’s NHS.

“Just like with the fake 40 hospitals the Tories are trying to take people for fools now with their fake 50,000 nurses deceit.”
