John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on the Royal College of Nursing’s study into NHS job losses, said:
"The Tory-led Government's obsession with NHS reorganisation is piling extra pressure on the health service.
“Patients are starting to see the NHS going backwards again under the Tories with waiting times rising, frontline nursing jobs cut and services cut back.
“This is not what people expected when David Cameron promised to 'protect' the NHS. The Prime Minister made health his most personal pledge but it's now becoming his biggest broken promise."
