Labour's shadow health secretary Andy Burnham welcomed the new report into improving A&E services in the NHS, but said the government's cuts to the health service had left people with no alternative but to inundate A&E units. In a statement, Mr Burnham said:
We welcome Sir Bruce Keogh’s important report and share much of his analysis, but we deplore the Government's attempt to avoid presenting it to Parliament and abdicate all responsibility for the crisis in A&E.
This Prime Minister has made it harder to get a GP appointment, closed NHS Walk-in Centres and scrapped NHS Direct leaving people with no alternative but to go to A&E.
