George Freeman welcomes action to tackle pressures on A&E

Speaking in a debate on the increasing pressures on A&E, George Freeman welcomes additional A&E consultants and that 2,000 more patients a day are being treated in under four hours.

George Freeman (Mid Norfolk) (Con): As a Norfolk MP I assure the right hon. Gentleman that we are on the case regarding ambulances, and the Minister is leading the charge. I am interested in the facts. Is not the truth that we are treating 2,000 more patients every day in under four hours in A and E, and that we have 350 more A and E consultants? In Norfolk and Norwich hospital, people tell us that it was under Labour, with the IT issues, integration, GP contracts and working time directive that A and E became chaotic. The right hon. Gentleman’s attack is unfair, ill-judged and overly partisan.
