Labour: Hunt's A&E staff admission 'shocking'

The shadow health minister Jamie Reed has said Jeremy Hunt's admission that A&E departments need more staff was "shocking" in light of the "chaos" and job losses his government has presided over.

This is a shocking admission from Jeremy Hunt - his Government has presided over the loss of 4,500 nurses since the election, and now he says that more A&E staff are needed.

With A&Es in crisis and the NHS in chaos following the Tories' £3 billion NHS reorganisation, it's time Ministers accepted responsibility and got a grip. The NHS is just not safe in David Cameron's hands.
