BBC revelations show the completely false economy of the Tory Government of under-funding the NHS
27 Jul 2016Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to BBC revelations on the cost of NHS consultants’ overtime, said “These BBC revelations are truly shocking.
“It shows the completely false economy of the Tory Government of under-funding the NHS. It has created staff shortages even at the highest levels because there are real pressures of an ageing and growing population which are not being met.
“A properly funded NHS would make these excessive overtime bills unnecessary. Labour will always defend the NHS.”
