Jamie Reed MP, Labour's Shadow Health Minister, responding to Jeremy Hunt's admission today that more A&E staff are needed, said:

"This is a shocking admission from Jeremy Hunt - his Government has presided over the loss of 4,500 nurses since the election, and now he says that more A&E staff are needed. With A&Es in crisis and the NHS in chaos following the Tories' £3 billion NHS reorganisation, it's time Ministers accepted responsibility and got a grip.  The NHS is just not safe in David Cameron's hands."
