Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to the news that Calais Hospital is advertising for NHS patients, said:

“This is very worrying and shows that the NHS clearly isn’t ‘better prepared’ for winter than ever before and that Theresa May really has lost control.

“Under the Tories, 14,000 hospital beds have been cut and we have 100,000 vacancies, which has left services facing unprecedented strains despite the heroic efforts of our brilliant staff.

"Patients deserve more than being forced to cross the Channel for their care.”
