PATIENTS are still waiting hours in accident and emergency departments.

The hospitals are both run by Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust.

Over the same period 66 patients had long waits at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust and 125 at Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust.

Repulsive. Think how youd feel if was your mother, daughter, son, father etc having to deal with this. Tories are squeezing the life feom NHS. Only 2 parties have committed publicly to increasing NHS funding. The NHS party and Labour. Pick one and support it or be responsible for thousands of deaths increasing across this shameful country. Would be happy, grudgingly, to support even UKIP if they will also publicly commit to giving adequate funds to NHS, as opposed to Tories who have publicly admitted intending to fully sell off and privatise it.
