Theresa May continues to show utter disregard for patients – Ashworth

Responding to Theresa May’s comment on the Andrew Marr show that “nothing is perfect” in the NHS, Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, said: 

“Yet again Theresa May has shown utter disregard for those patients languishing on trolleys, delayed in ambulances in the freezing cold weather or forced to wait longer in pain and anxiety because their operation has been cancelled.

“A real apology would be backed up by real action. Instead all we get is a plan to promote the Health Secretary who has overseen this crisis. Promoting the Health Secretary would be a betrayal of patients who deserve better this winter.”
