    Health chiefs accuse Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer of using NHS as a scapegoat in blame game

    Health chiefs accuse Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer of using NHS as a scapegoat in political blame game over care home deaths

    • NHS Providers accused the party leaders of using the NHS as a scapegoat
    • Chief executive Chris Hopson penned a letter to both Johnson and Starmer
    • Labour claimed Covid-19 patients were sent to care homes without being tested
    • Prime Minister argued that no patient was discharged without doctor’s approval

    Boris Johnson and Sir Keir Starmer have been accused of using the NHS as a scapegoat in the back-and-forth coronavirus blame game over care homes.

    NHS Providers, which deals with talks between the NHS and the Department of Health, has criticised the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition who have both laid the blame of coronavirus deaths in care homes at the door of the NHS.

    The chief executive of NHS Providers Chris Hopson told The Times that the health service has been used as a political football.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been accused of pointing fingers at NHS doctors to cover over shortages in tests and PPE for care workers

    Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer has also been challenged by NHS Providers after he claimed patients suspected of having coronavirus were discharged to care homes before being properly tested

    Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer has also been challenged by NHS Providers after he claimed patients suspected of having coronavirus were discharged to care homes before being properly tested

    ‘One set of politicians have effectively been seeking to unfairly blame the NHS as a means of attacking the government,’ he said.

    ‘And in our view, the government has also been seeking to kind of deflect blame by saying, “Oh well, you know, the NHS has got to have this degree of responsibility”.’

    In a letter to both Johnson and Starmer, Hopson told the party leaders that the NHS had been unfairly dragged into their argument.

    At least 11,000 people have so far died in care homes as a result of coronavirus.

    Labour challenged the Government on why patients suspected to have coronavirus were discharged to care homes without being properly tested.

    The Prime Minister argued that no patient was allowed to leave any hospital without the permission of their doctor.

    Hopson denied that patients with coronavirus were knowingly discharged to care homes by NHS staff.

    Labour responded to the letter by saying they had a duty to challenge the government on what they are doing to help health and social care workers.

    A source from the Government also replied saying it made no sense to lay any blame at the door of hospitals because government ministers are ultimately responsible for those trusts.
