Marr tells Tory PM May that he “would have died if he had stroke during NHS winter crisis.”[Full Interview]

“If I’d waited five hours to see a doctor, I’d be dead.”

Theresa May​ is confronted by Andrew Marr with the reality of the NHS funding and staffing crises on The Andrew Marr Show​.

In an interview in her constituency office, BBC presenter Andrew Marr explained to Theresa May that if he had suffered the stroke that incapacitated him in 2013 today, he may not have survived.

Theresa May continued to insist that the NHS is better prepared and funded than ever.

But on his Sunday show, Marr described how Leah Butler-Smith’s mother waited five hours to be seen after a stroke this week, adding: “If I’d been waiting for five hours before I’d seen a doctor after my stroke, I would not be here talking to you.”

“This is about life and death, and up and down the country people are having horrendous experiences of the NHS,” he added.

“Whether you say there’s a plan, or not, there’s a real problem.”

But the PM continued to insist: “If we look at what is happening across the NHS, we see it is delivering for more people.

“It is treating more people, and more people are being seen within the four hours every day – when compared to a few years ago. But nothing is perfect and there is more for us to do.”

    Think you need to sack your proof reader. Donald Trumps Tweets are better written than this.

    “In an interview in her constituency office, BBC presenter Andrew Marr explained to Theresa May that if there had suffered the stroke that incapacitated him in 2013 today, he may not have survived.

    Theresa May continued to insist that the NHS is better prepared and funded than ever despite NHS trusts as they had warned would happen around the nation struggling to cope, leaving many waiting outside hospitals in ambulances waiting to be seen.”

    Does she simply say what she’s been told to say or does she really believe what she says? Either way, she hardly fills me with confidence.

    She is so frustrating. She does not answer anything. The NHS is underfunded. She is not affected by this & seems unable to put herself in the shoes of a normal person attending an A & E department & having to wait 5 hours. She,& the rest of the government should have to attend hospital just like us and not be given private care. What makes them so special?

    Its Funny she can find several billion pounds,Given to people (who cant govern there own country because of misspending IE corruption). To prop up her totally corrupt bunch of millionaires s she calls a cabinet . They also give a billion or two to there mates to mess up the railways. Her and this bunch gangsters will need to be called to account for the Deaths of people waiting to get into Hospital…. Time for a change.
