Rishi Sunak: ‘Government doing everything it can to put money into the NHS’

At prime minister’s questions today, prime minister Rishi Sunak and Labour leader Keir Starmer clashed on the NHS.

Starmer said: “This week the prime minister unveiled the latest version of his five pledges for the country. Let’s hope he has more success with these than the last one. Did he forget the NHS?”.

Rishi Sunak responded: “Just weeks after becoming prime minister, [I] injected record funding into the NHS and in social care. We also unveiled the first ever long term workforce plan in the NHS’ 75 year history”.
