FRESH evidence of the disastrous toll of Tory cuts came to light yesterday with NHS England figures revealing 19,000 operations cancelled in the last three months of 2014.
A week ago health experts at the King’s Fund warned that government privatisation policies have plunged the service into chaos.
And yesterday’s cancellation statistics — the result of rising budget and staffing pressures at hospitals — are the worst since 2010.
In the same three months of 2013-14 the figure stood at 15,852.
Labour shadow health secretary Andy Burnham said they were “another sign of how the NHS has gone downhill.
“As the King’s Fund said, patient care has been damaged by a reorganisation that has thrown the NHS off course.”
David Cameron had fuelled the crisis “by making it harder to see a GP and taking social care support away from hundreds of thousands of people,” Mr Burnham added.
