This analysis is a damning indictment of this Government’s underfunding and mismanagement of the NHS
26 Aug 2016Speaking in response to the 38 degrees report on Government Stability and Transformation Plans (STPs) for NHS Trusts, Shadow Secretary of State for Health Diane Abbott said:“This analysis is a damning indictment of this Government’s underfunding and mismanagement of the NHS.
“It reinforces all the concerns highlighted by the recent NHS providers report and the King’s Fund survey of Trusts’ NHS Finance Directors. Emergency closures of vital units across the country testify to a real crisis.
“The Government needs to properly fund the NHS and cut out the waste of PFI, agency staffing and inflated drug prices. These resources should be ploughed back in to frontline services.”
