Bed blocking getting worse despite Labour promises

Lib Dem health spokesman Norman Lamb has that bed blocking in the NHS is on the rise again despite assurances just a few months ago from the Labour government that they were acting to deal with this.

Since Labour made their announcement, bed blocking has actually increased by 30%, with the problem now costing the NHS a reported £100 million a year.

It appears, like so much Labour froth, that the pledge and announcement to do something about this was nothing more than a speech, with no actual action to follow it up.
