Andrew Gwynne MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to the Government’s announcement on failing hospitals, said:
“This plan contains little for the struggling NHS frontline.
“Reports revealed that these hospitals have deteriorated and lost staff under David Cameron – Ministers shouldn’t try to pass the buck.
“The hospitals need enough staff on the ground to provide staff care. When almost half of all hospital wards are failing to meet safe staffing levels, the Government must show how it will boost numbers.
“This is further proof you can’t trust the Tories with the NHS.”
