Politicians must not forget NHS as Brexit takes centre stage in general election

Reaction to the Health Foundation’s warning that waiting times for many NHS urgent and emergency services in England are the worst for five years: 

“These figures add to the growing body of evidence showing an NHS at breaking point, struggling to cope with increasing demand and leaving patients facing unacceptable delays for treatment.

“Our hospitals and GP surgeries are full, social care is collapsing, NHS staff are working under impossible conditions, and patients are being let down.

“At such a critical time for our health service, politicians must not forget the NHS as Brexit takes centre stage in the general election.

“It is vital for the next government to ensure that NHS funding keeps pace with other European nations, that the NHS and EU doctors in the UK are protected from the impact of Brexit, that general practice is properly supported, that policies protect and enhance the public’s health, and that the pressures impacting the day-to-day delivery of high-quality, safe care are tackled.”
