Leaked proposals from three areas have already revealed plans including downgrading or closing A&Es [Image: Chris Radburn/PA].

Shame on The Guardian for accusing the NHS of hiding planned service cuts.

The health service is run by the minority Conservative government and must do what it is told.

Its spokesperson is right to say it must work within its budget. As for the information it releases – that’s up to the Tories.

So let’s be honest – it’s not the NHS hiding the facts; it is the Conservative Party. Again.

The NHS has been accused of keeping the public in the dark about controversial plans to plug a £250m funding gap by rationing services.

The crowdfunded campaign group 38 Degrees submitted freedom of information (FOI) requests to the government, NHS leaders as well as trusts and clinical commissioning groups in the 13 areas affected but all except two refused to release details of planned changes.

Leaked proposals from three areas have already revealed plans including downgrading or closing A&Es and extending waiting times for operations, and 38 Degrees says the public is entitled to know what else is in store.
