NHS: Britain’s top doctor says hospitals ”bursting at seams” and slams Government’s ”sticking plaster solutions”

Patients’ lives are at risk because the Government has failed to find any “real solutions” to the NHS crisis, Britain’s top doctor warns today.

Dr Mark Porter, chair of the the British Medical Association, which represents more than 150,000 doctors, blames the Tory-led coalition for the growing chaos in the health service as hospitals are “bursting at the seams” after A&E units across the country suffered “one of the worst winters on record”. In a major blow for the Government, Dr Porter, one of the most powerful people in the health service, will today go on the attack over new BMA research which exposes the scale of the NHS crisis for the first time.  And he slammed both prime minister David Cameron and Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt for their “series of headline grabbing initiatives and sticking plaster policies to bail out accident and emergency departments”. He accused the Government of failing to develop “a long-term, sustainable solution”.
