Nice to see North Bristol NHS Trust spending taxpayers money on blatant political spin for New Labour.
This dossier compiled by the Tories of hospitals at risk of downsizing includes Frenchay Hospital’s A&E Department which, as has been well-publicised, is being closed and the service moved to Southmead. Or so we thought…
Not so North Bristol NHS Trust thundered to The Mirror “it’s absolute rubbish – it simply is not true and is very annoying”.
In The Daily Mail Fiona Reid, spokeswoman for North Bristol NHS Trust, said the Tory claim that Frenchay Hospital’s A&E service faces the axe was “simply not the case”.
Great. Does this mean Frenchay’s A&E Department is to remain now? Or are we funding New Labour’s lies with money meant for our NHS?
