Shadow health secretary Andy Burnham said the coalition's care reform plans are an attempt to "distract attention from the Government's own failings".
He added that A&Es have gone downhill "sharply" in the last couple of years, which was greatly due to cuts in social care.
Mr Burnham identified two problems with the out of hours service, the first that the NHS does not need another "huge organisation", and the second that it will still not solve the problems in A&E.
