Labour: NHS is being 'let down by weak leadership'

The NHS "is being let down by the weak leadership of Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Steve Barclay," says Labour Shadow Leader of the House of Commons Thangam Debbonaire.

She adds that Labour would solve the NHS's workforce problems by using the money obtained by scrapping the non-dom tax break.
