A MOTHER has spoken of the horror of trying to comfort her daughter as she lost her baby in crowded waiting rooms full of sick and injured people desperate for help.
Jody, from Dawlish, said: ‘The medical staff were fantastic throughout and under terrible pressure.’
Such a sorry state of affairs and condolences to the families affected. However we as tax paying public need answers not excuses. So when is the A & E and ambulance situation going to be resolved. If the CEOs of both Exeter and Torbay trusts cannot answer such a simple question then they need to resign with immediate effect and if they dont then the governors of the trusts need to sack them.
I've just heard Suella Braverman (Attorney General and a Liz Truss supporter in the Conservative leadership race) say on Sky news that Liz Truss is committed to the Conservative Party 2019 election manifesto with regard to building lots of new hospitals. (Can't remember the figure off hand but it was some pie in the sky figure).
Heard myself say outloud to the tv "Oh, yeah, and where are all the staff coming from then even supposing that you meet this fantasy figure?"

Edit: just checked - this is what the Conservatives promised in 2019: Upgrading 20 hospitals and building 40 new ones
Truss will say anything to get what SHE wants. If you trust what a politician says then there is no hope for you!
