Diane Abbott warns against 'big variations in NHS child care'

Shadow Public Health Minister, Diane Abbott MP responds to the NHS Atlas of Variation in Healthcare for Children and Young People report on 'big variations in NHS child care':

'This report makes the recent warning by over 400 senior doctors and public health experts that the government's car crash NHS bill will widen inequalities even more important. The truth is the government's NHS plans will break up and fragment care for British children, not improve it.

'We're not seeing the focus on children's health that the country needs. I've made clear that children's health is a priority. The government needs to think again on a range of policies, because what we are seeing is welfare cuts, rising unemployment, cuts to Sure Start and a fragmentation of health services, which will hit poorer areas harder and make health inequalities even worse.

'It is a national scandal that the government is moving NHS spending in England away from poorer areas towards richer parts of the country.'
