Under David Cameron, it has got harder, not easier to get a GP appointment

Andy Burnham Nhs

Andy Burnham MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary,commenting on Cameron's NHS promise.

“David Cameron made an almost identical announcement this time last year but, in the 12 months since, he has made it harder, not easier, to get a GP appointment.

“After the election, David Cameron scrapped Labour’s GP appointment guarantee and cut support for evening and weekend opening. His broken promises on the NHS have caught up with him.

"Labour has a plan for extra funding for the NHS and commitment to recruit 8000 more GPs.

“Under David Cameron, it has got harder and harder to get a GP appointment. People are left ringing the surgery early in the morning only to be told nothing is available for days. The next Labour Government will guarantee a GP appointment within 48 hours or a same-day consultation with a doctor or nurse for those who need it.”
