Party, party, party!

Waiting times are down but are still the longest in Western Europe, deficits are spiraling out of control, nurses feel their vital jobs are under threat, and 40,533 people are waiting more than six months for an outpatients' appointment.

The Labour Assembly Government responds by holding a reception for 70 NHS professionals. Worse still, no front-line staff have been invited to this party despite the fact that they have worked extremely hard in very difficult conditions to deliver the best possible service to their patients.

Not only is this party premature, it is insensitive and is a kick in the teeth to those communities and patients who are campaigning against proposed closures of hospitals and other facilities. Labour really have scored an own goal this time.
