health and social care55,000 operations have been cancelled in the last month and 16,900 people had to wait outside A&E in ambulances for an excessive time between Christmas and New Year. Against a target of 95% only 81% of patients were seen in A&E within the target time of 4 hours.

On top of this, in October, Jeremy Hunt lied to Parliament by saying that there were 30,000 more people working in mental health than when Labour were in power. The reality is that there are now 5,000 fewer menatl health nurses than in 2010.

His reward in the re-shuffle? He kept his job with more responsiblity (for social care). Heaven help us!
