Kyle Taylor, Director of Smart Brexit, responds to latest NHS performance figures

Responding to the latest NHS performance figures, Kyle Taylor, Director of Smart Brexit said:

“Todays figures show a 500% increase in the number of A&E departments reporting serious pressures on services in just one week. There are seventy seven days before Brexit negotiations begin, at which point the government’s priorities will shift and the NHS will take a back seat. Brexit, though, is the perfect opportunity to provide extra funding for the NHS as the UK will recoup some money from the EU. If the Prime Minister doesn’t mention the NHS in her Brexit speech next week then she’ll be guilty of serious negligence.”
