Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary signs up to Hospital campaign

Andy Burnham - hospital campaign

In Brighton for Labour Party conference this week, we caught up with Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, Andy Burnham MP, and took the opportunity to sign up his support for our Rotherham Hospital campaign.

Mr Burnham used his conference speech to again confirm that the next Labour government will repeal the Tory Health and Social Care Act, which is undermining our health service and helping to put our local services at risk. In a scathing attack on Tory health policy, he pointed to problems occuring across the country which are sadly not unfamiliar in Rotherham; “This year – the worst in a decade in A&E. 1 million people waiting more than four hours. The first summer A&E crisis in living memory.”
