A&E waiting times will be worse with Tories' extreme Brexit

Responding to NHS England figures which have today revealed A&E waiting times hit their worst-ever level in December, amid growing pressures on the NHS, Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Munira Wilson said:


ā€œThe crisis in A&E is worsening month on month under the Conservatives. Patients are suffering with the worst-ever A&E waiting times but the Conservatives are determined to make the situation worse.

ā€œThe Tories' extreme Brexit including ending freedom of movement, will deprive the NHS of the vital EU nurses and doctors hospitals and A&Eā€™s rely on.

ā€œLiberal Democrats will continue to fight to stop a no-deal Brexit at the end of 2020 to protect the NHS. It is essential that the transition period can be extended to ensure freedom of movement is maintained.ā€
