Here’s another line from the Tory playbook: Do as I say – not as I do.

Jeremy Hunt is working hard to convince us all not to visit Accident & Emergency departments at hospitals with anything but the most urgent medical problems.

But in 2014 he took his own children to A&E because he didn’t want to wait for a GP appointment.

Today, immediate GP appointments are still all-but-impossible to find, and the other options – walk-in centres – have mostly been closed by Mr Hunt.

So what are people supposed to do?

Oh, and now Mr Hunt has compounded his hypocrisy by claiming he will “release” GPs to work in A&E. This prompted the following retort from Dr David Wrigley of Keep Our NHS Public:

“Quite unbelievable. Hunt says he will ‘release GPs for A&E work’ -like we’re twiddling our thumbs & have our feet up. Get a grip!”

And this from Dr Ben White:

Add it all up and the NHS humanitarian crisis is going to get much, much worse before it gets better.

All because the Conservatives cannot bring themselves to say, “Sorry.”

How many more have to die before they admit they were wrong?
