Jamie Reed MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to the Pulse poll showing a drop in support by GPs for the Conservatives, said:
“This is a damning indictment of David Cameron’s NHS betrayal. GPs repeatedly warned the Prime Minister over his chaotic NHS re-organisation and decision to force GP commissioners to put every contract out to tender, but he ploughed on regardless. Doctors are now abandoning him in droves – showing a complete lack of faith in the Tories’ handling of the NHS. On Cameron’s watch, we are seeing hundreds of thousands more people waiting longer in A&E, 4,500 nurses cut and a £3billion re-organisation he ruled out. It’s becoming ever clearer that the NHS is not safe in his hands.”
