    Nurses under pressure for lack of staff.

    Hospital patients face higher risk of death at night because NHS cuts have left wards short staffed

    David Cameron has been repeatedly warned his savage NHS cuts will lead to dangerous levels of patient safety in overstretched hospitals.

    The PM was accused of ignoring medical experts after a damning report revealed the chances of dying on wards at night was greatly increased due to a chronic shortage of nurses.

    Union chiefs fear the crisis could lead to another Mid Staffordshire-style disaster where patient deaths soared due to a lack of staff and sloppy care.

    A survey by Unison found 59% of nurses on night shifts are unable to deliver proper care because of cuts.

    The Tory-led ­Coalition has slashed 5,000 posts since 2010.

    I remember clear as day that the Tories were famous for saying that "The NHS is safe in our hands".

    Well, this report just proves that it is nothing of the sort, and the quicker the NHS is taken out of the hands of the Tories the better.

    Don't you agree ?
