Senior Tories Warn of NHS Collapse within 5 Years
THE GUARDIAN – Senior Tories have called on David Cameron to increase NHS spending significantly as a former coalition health minister forecasts a collapse in the service.
A slew of bad news over the NHS has raised Tory fears that the health service could again prove to be a toxic issue just 10 months before a general election.
The NHS says 299,031 patients arrived at A&E departments last week – the highest number on record. A&E waiting time targets were missed for the 49th consecutive week and a record number of beds were filled last month by patients who could not be discharged, often because community or social care services were not in place.
