Shadow Health Secretary responds to the news that Lincoln's A&E has reached crisis point

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on reports in today’s media about Lincoln’s A&E reaching crisis point, said:

 

“Right across England hospitals are struggling with a shortage of staff because of this Government’s failure on NHS workforce planning. The over reliance on temporary and agency staff is causing massive problems and it is a real concern that services for patients in Lincoln are now at risk because the supply of staff is so unpredictable. The Government urgently need to get a grip and explain what action they’re going to take to make sure hospitals can get the number of staff in place that they need to keep services running and patients safe.”
