Jamie Reed MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, said in response to this afternoon’s hospital funding announcement:
"The Government’s damaging and unnecessary NHS reorganisation is wasting over £3 bn and causing Ministers to lose their grip on the health service. Patients are beginning to pay the price of David Cameron’s reckless reorganisation as waiting lists rise, services are cut and thousands of nursing jobs are axed.  If the Prime Minister dropped his reckless Health Bill he could spend this money on the NHS frontline and start by saving the 6,000 nursing posts that are set to be lost before the next election."
