EMBARGO: Immediate Release
Responding to Rishi Sunak's speech this morning, Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey MP said:
“By officially de-prioritising the NHS and omitting it from his top 5 priorities, Rishi Sunak has shown yet again just how out of touch he is.
"The Prime Minister clearly doesn’t care about the millions of people across the country on hospital waiting lists or the families and pensioners struggling to get appointments with a GP or dentist.
“Shockingly, the Prime Minister doesn’t even understand the link between a better health service and a stronger economy.
“Any strategy for economic growth must have a strategy for better healthcare, yet the Conservatives clearly don’t understand that.”
