Andy Burnham challenges Orpington Conservatives on health plans

Andy Burnham and Stephen Morgan, Labour candidate for Orpington, have issued a health challenge to Conservatives in Orpington.

Andy Burnham said:

Londoners have a clear choice between Labour who will defend the NHS and the Conservatives who will not. The Tories will scrap Labour’s guarantee for cancer test results in one week, scrap Labour’s guarantee of seeing a cancer specialist in two weeks, scrap Labour’s guarantee of treatment within 18 weeks and scrap the four hours maximum A&E waiting time target.

Today, I challenge Conservatives in Orpington to match Labour’s pledges for better healthcare for all Londoners.

Stephen Morgan said:

Orpington residents should take a long hard look at the Conservatives health policies.
The Conservatives would scrap Labour’s guarantee of having cancer test results in one week, seeing a cancer specialist in two weeks and Labour’s guarantee of treatment within 18 weeks and our four hours maximum A&E waiting time target.

Only Labour will guarantee that no Londoner will wait more than 2 weeks for a cancer referral and will receive diagnosis within one week, saving up to 1500 lives in the capital.

I challenge the Conservative candidate for Orpington to match Labour’s pledges for Hounslow residents.
