Commenting on the record low A&E figures, health policy lead Claudia Martinez said:
“These are dismally familiar statistics. The NHS has had extra funding and is set for more while performance only gets worse. This is a clear indication that radical reform, not just record sums, are required.
“Over a third of people attended A&E last month with minor illnesses and injuries, which should have been treated in the community, by a GP for example.
“Getting A&E back on track means fixing the social care crisis and reforming our primary care system. With a large majority and a commitment to record investment, the Government has no excuse for inaction.
“Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. More cash without reform is doing just that.”
