    NHS bosses shut walk in centres.

    In a slow death of a thousand cuts under Tory Health ­Secretary Jeremy Hunt, our NHS is shrinking before our very eyes.

    Latest headlines:

    NHS bosses shut walk-in centres as A&E crisis deepens while desperate hospitals want to turn away patients


    Campaigners attack the latest signs of Tory-led chaos, including horror stories showing hospitals are setting up beds in lounge areas and turning away ambulances.

    These NHS walk-in centres are being closed so medics can be diverted to crisis-hit A&E departments. But as the “minor injuries units” are intended to reduce pressure on hospital emergency services – shutting them down just increases that strain.

    Read the full story from The Daily Mirror HERE.




    ANOTHER sign that the NHS is just not safe in Tory hands !

    Dead right Paps. Of course we already knew that the Tories could not be trusted with the NHS, didn't we ?

    I worry what damage they can do to our NHS by the time they are eventually thrown out next year.

    Yes, you might be right there mate.

    Now, about these "walk-in-centres": The were introduced to directly take the pressure of A & E services, but I knew that if cost-cutting was to carry on, they would be the first to go.

    Typically Tory if you ask me !
