GP surgeries “withering” in Labour-run-Wales
Commenting on the news that health chiefs have warned recruiting GPs was “a national problem” and that surgeries were “withering”, Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister, Russell George MS said:
“Our Welsh NHS is critically understaffed due to 25 years of Labour under resourcing our health service with real terms cuts to fund their vanity projects. It is no wonder that patients are queueing outside hospitals with black alerts being declared.
“The Labour Welsh Government say that GP recruitment targets are being hit. I would suggest that those targets are clearly not ambitious enough, a recurring theme for Labour.
“The Welsh Conservatives want to see the Labour Welsh Government replicate Rishi Sunak’s workforce plan and to adopt our calls for a tuition fee refund for healthcare workers that stay in Wales to boost numbers.”
