NHS waiting times

Increased #NHS waiting times leave my constituents frustrated and in agony, not knowing what is going to happen. Some are begging and borrowing to go private. Is this the plan for NHS?  The Minister said he ‘understood’ the pain, but he had no plan!

These waiting times are misery, pain, frustration and agony for my constituents, and then there is the mental anguish of not knowing what is happening or going to happen. I have constituents who are begging and borrowing the money to go private because they cannot stand the pain. Is that the Minister’s plan for the NHS: driving people into the private sector? If it is not, what is his plan?
