Labour press release
Andy Burnham MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, in response to the King’s Fund quarterly report on longer A&E waits and missed NHS efficiency targets, said:
“This report is highly embarrassing for a Prime Minister who said A&E waits would be one of the tests of his NHS re-organisation.
“He was repeatedly warned that his disastrous decision to re-organise the NHS at a time of financial stress would distract the NHS from the efficiency challenge and damage patient care. He chose not to listen and people won't forgive him for putting politics before patients.
“On David Cameron's watch, the NHS is heading back to the bad old days of chaos in A&E and patients left on trolleys.”
