AL JAZEERA: UK election: Is this the NHS election?

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 7/6/2017

Description

Dr Enam Haque, a lecturer at the University of Manchester Medical School, said government mismanagement has caused a severe deterioration in the level of care the NHS provides.

"The Tories [Conservatives] have destroyed the morale of NHS frontline staff, creating shortages of staff and therefore a more dangerous environment to work in," he told Al Jazeera.

"The root cause is chronic underfunding by the Tories.

"They have reduced funding to the NHS at a time when chronic disease is rising with the ageing population."
