Marion Nash: While she waited for the ambulance, her two daughters covered her in blankets as she shook because of the freezing temperatures.

This is today’s story about the travesty that is the National Health Service in England under the leadership of Jeremy Hunt and the Conservative government.

Remember when the Tories said introducing private companies into the NHS would improve the service? That was a lie, then.

Of course, private companies don’t run ambulance services, or Accident & Emergency departments. They just suck money away from those branches of the health service because their bosses want lots of profit.

The result: A woman with a broken back has to wait seven hours, in agony, for an ambulance.

And Hunt doesn’t even have the decency to resign in shame.

The family of a mother have criticised the “sorry” state of the NHS after she was forced to wait seven hours before doctors treated her broken back following a fall at home.

Marion Nash, 61, slipped and fell from the top step of a ladder while clearing her back garden on Monday last week after the wreckage of the Beast from the East.

She was left writhing in pain after fracturing her spine in what have been described as “life-changing injuries” by family.
