Good constituency MPs like Sturgeon would do something about ‘third world’ local hospitals. Sunak and Truss have not

Readers will remember that the nearest A&E departments to the First Minister’s Glasgow constituency saw 72.4% of patients in 4 hours, in June 2022. This was lightly better than the Scottish average of 71.3% despite the particular challenges they face in one of the most deprived parts of the country.

The nearest A&E department’s to the Norfolk constituency of Lizz Truss, only did a shocking 43.1%

The nearest A&E to Sunak’s affluent Richmond constituency is in Darlington, 11 miles away. County Durham And Darlington NHS Foundation Trust’s A&E departments only saw 48.7% in 4 hours.

Imagine either of these results were reported in any Scottish hospitals, what the media coverage would be? It is in fairness, something constituents would expect their local MSP to follow up on with both the local health board and with the Scottish Health Secretary, as matter of priority.

What have Truss and Sunak being doing? I know, pursuing their own careers and leaving their constituents to bask in reflected if sickly glory?

  1. But Nicola Sturgeon has only helped maintain a higher %age level of A+E at her local Hospital because she is ”an attention seeker ” .
    Truss and Sunak will continue ”to ignore ” their own A+E levels because they are too busy ” getting on with the day job ” of promoting themselves in the worst leadership contest since the last Tory leadership contest .
