BMA NO CONFIDENCE VOTE is a crushing personal defeat for Cameron and Hunt – Gwynne

Newly assigned Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt arrives at Downing Street in LondonAndrew Gwynne MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to the vote of no confidence in Jeremy Hunt at the British Medical Association conference today, said:

“This vote is a crushing personal defeat for David Cameron and Jeremy Hunt – and a Government who promised to listen to doctors.

“The NHS needs leadership and stability, but on David Cameron’s watch England’s A&Es are in crisis and four thousand nursing jobs have been lost.  He siphoned over £3 billion out of patient care and blown it on a back-office re-organisation.

“We welcome the BMA’s support for repealing last year’s disastrous NHS Act. David Cameron is putting profits before patients in the NHS. That’s why Labour will repeal the Government’s free market and put the right values back at the heart of the NHS.”
