Responding to Wednesday's report from the King's Fund, which showed that waiting times for hospital treatment have reached their highest level for three years, Labour's Shadow Health Secretary, John Healey MP, said: 

"This independent report will further add to people's concerns that the NHS is slipping backwards again under David Cameron.

"Front-line staff and managers are massively distracted by David Cameron's top-down reorganisation of the health service, and the signs of strain are now there for all to see.

"So much for Mr Cameron's pledge to 'protect' the NHS."
