Labour said they would not support the introduction of a £10 monthly fee for NHS patients, as proposed by former Labour health minister Lord Warner in a report by a centre-left think tank.
Jamie Reed, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, said:
This is not something Labour would ever consider. We believe in an NHS free at the point of use, and a Labour government will repeal David Cameron's NHS changes that put private profit before patient care.
The truth is that after wasting £3 billion on a damaging reorganisation and causing a crisis in A&E, it is David Cameron you can’t trust with the NHS.
