Dr Peter Carter, chief executive and general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), has said while he agrees with the Health Secretary, hospitals need more support; "our members will agree that all hospitals should be aiming for excellence, but this requires investment and leadership.
"Front-line staff want to work in excellent hospitals, but they need the proper support to be able to do this. Team GB's fantastic success is down to a combination of ambition supported by proper investment and resources, and this needs to be emulated in the NHS."
