Unprecedented workforce crisis in NHS with over 100,000 vacancies – Justin Madders


Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister,
responding to the latest NHS vacancy data, said:

“Theresa May
has overseen an unprecedented workforce crisis in our NHS, with over 100,000
vacancies across the system. These latest figures reveal in the starkest
fashion how serious shortages have become, with new trainees put off from
joining and existing nurses increasingly retiring early.

“Even in her
own backyard, the situation is desperate. Thames Valley managed to hire just
five nurses for 1,957 advertised posts – just one in 400. On the day her own
Foreign Secretary has called for emergency funding, Theresa May must get an
urgent grip of this escalating chaos in our NHS.”
