David Cameron and Ed Miliband began to draw their lines over the NHS ahead of the General Election as they squared off over the NHS after the recent rash of hospitals declaring major incidents.
Mr Miliband accused the Prime Minister of "blaming the patients" for the pressure facing struggling accident and emergency (A&E) departments and claimed the health service was in "crisis".
Mr Cameron turned his fire on the Labour leader, claiming he had talked of "weaponising" the NHS in a "disgusting" attempt to make political capital from its strains.
In bad-tempered exchanges at Prime Minister's Questions, Mr Miliband replied:
I'll tell you what's disgusting - it's a Prime Minister who said people could put their trust in him on the NHS.
You have betrayed that trust. You are in denial about the crisis in the NHS. This is a crisis on your watch as a result of your decisions.
That is why people know if they want to get rid of the crisis in the NHS they have to get rid of this Prime Minister.
Mr Cameron hit back, telling MPs: "If ever you wanted proof (Labour) want to use this issue as a political football you have just seen it."
Ed Miliband wants former nursing staff to be drafted in as part of a new five-point plan to ease the burden on accident and emergency.
Hospitals are saying there simply are not enough beds and trained medical staff for sick patients who need to be admitted.
With A&E waiting times slumping to their worst in 10 years, did your hospital make it on to the worst 10 list?
