The truth is the Tories simply don’t care about, and can’t be trusted with, the NHS – Jonathan Ashworth responds to NHS training announcement

Responding to the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s announcement on NHS training, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary Jonathan Ashworth said:

“This falls short of Labour’s £330 million pledge to invest in training our NHS staff and comes after years of Tory cuts contributing to a staffing crisis which has seen 100,000 shortages across the health service.

“The truth is the Tories simply don’t care about, and can’t be trusted with, the NHS.”
