Figures released by NHS England have revealed the damage done to our health service by just one year of Theresa May’s leadership, according to the Labour Party.

After a year of Theresa May as Tory Prime Minister, NHS figures show:

·         2,550,755 people waited over four hours to be seen in A&E, an increase of 460,530

·         280,000 people have been added to waiting lists, meaning over 4 million people are currently waiting for treatment

·         The total number of bed days lost due to delayed transfers of care was over 2.2 million, an increase of 366,032

·         There have been 80,664 cancelled elective operations, equal to 1551 per week, an increase of 3,775.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was last seen showing his concern for the well-being of others by helping a mother get a pram up a railway station’s steps:

He had this to say about the state of the health service: “NHS patients cannot afford another year of Theresa May. She has said she is ‘proud’ of the Conservative record on the NHS, but after a year in office, patients are waiting longer to be seen in A&E, longer for treatment and longer to be discharged. That is nothing to be proud of.

“The crisis in social care is crippling our hospitals as more people have delayed discharges because there isn’t proper care available for them outside. The Conservatives pledged to reduce delayed discharges but have failed to honour their promise.

“Labour would immediately put £2 billion into social care. And we would lift the public sector pay cap and reinstate nurses’ bursaries to help recruit and retain NHS staff. The NHS is simply not safe in the hands of the Conservatives. A Labour government will invest in our NHS so it can properly look after the vast majority of people who rely on it.”
