Nick Thomas-Symonds is wrong, Labour can’t hide from their NHS record

Responding to Nick Thomas-Symonds’ comments blaming the state of the Welsh NHS on the UK Conservative Government, Sam Rowlands MS, Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister said:

“Nick Thomas Symonds is wrong. Labour cannot hide from their abysmal NHS record in Wales, where have the longest waiting lists in the UK.

“Health is devolved and has been run by the Labour Welsh Government for 25 years. Wales receives £1.20 for every £1 spent on health in England, but a lot of the extra funding is swallowed up by Labour and Plaid’s costly vanity projects like 20mph and creating 36 more politicians.

“The Welsh Conservatives would make the health service our number one priority and finally allocate every penny received as a result of health spending in England on the Welsh NHS.”
