Helen Morgan challenges PM on A and E waiting times in Shropshire

We reported earlier on Sarah Olney’s question to the Prime Minister today but she wasn’t the only Lib Dem called.

Helen Morgan has been pushing the Government to improve NHS services from ambulance waiting times to the time people spend in A and E.

Today, she questioned Rishi Sunak after learning that 10,000 pensioners had spent more than 24 hours waiting on trolleys and hard chairs, up from just 290 in 2019. That’s not to mention the 4200 adults who had the same fate.

She said:

The Prime Minister tells us he has a plan for the NHS, but here in North Shropshire, the service is in crisis – and not getting any better.
If Rishi Sunak can’t – or won’t – take the action Shropshire needs, we need a new Government.

Excuses just won’t do when thousands of my constituents are being left on trolleys and in waiting rooms for hours and days at a time.

  • It was good to see two Lib Dem MPs raising highly pertinent matters relevant to their own constituents and the wider population, even if they were largely fobbed off in PM Sunak’s response.

    However my curiosity was spiked by the opening question from a North Devon Tory about the Lib Dem council not re-opening Barnstaple bus station. Can anyone with local knowledge throw some light on what’s happening there, given it might be a seat we’re hoping to win back at the forthcoming general election.
