Jamie Reed MP, Labour's Shadow Health Minister, in response to Health Minister Anna Soubry's admission that the Government "screwed up" its health reforms, said:
"This Tory-led Government is completely out of touch if they think the only problem with their NHS plans is one of presentation. The Government rammed through its wasteful £3bn re-organisation in the face of overwhelming public and professional opposition - these comments will do nothing for patients suffering because of the chaos David Cameron has created in the NHS.
"Cameron may have reshuffled his Health Ministers but their policies remain the same - thousands of nursing jobs are being axed and patients are being left waiting longer and longer. David Cameron needs to change direction and stop this chaos in the NHS.”
