Following the publication of NHS England figures that show A&E departments last week failed to meet their target of seeing 95% of patients within four hours, George Osborne defended the Conservative Party's NHS record.
Speaking to the BBC, the chancellor said he had put an extra £2 billion into the system.
There are more people than ever working in our health service, we are treating more people than ever, the people within the health service are doing a brilliant job and we are backing them up with increases in the amounts of money going to the health service.
That's not something that has been easy to do, we have had to make difficult decisions - as people are aware - elsewhere in government budgets in order to prioritise the health service.
