Rachel Power – Chief Executive of the Patients Association writes to the PM following the election


Rachel Power has written to the Prime Minister to congratulate him, and ask for urgent clarification on key items of policy that are of concern to patients. In a statement published on Friday 13th December, she said:

“The last few days of the election campaign made the extent of the crisis in the NHS plain to see, with reports of patients waiting on trolleys, chairs and floors in hospital corridors, even relatively early in the winter. Mr Johnson’s Government has been returned on a platform that raises many concerns for patients, and presents little reassurance. The Conservative Party’s manifesto betrayed his promise to produce a solution to the social care crisis, and contained little, if anything, to help the NHS face what could be its worst winter of modern times.”
