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”.

He accused the Government of failing to develop “a long-term, sustainable solution”.
