MPs working to recruit more staff to ease the strain on health care workers

Guardian, 08 Jun 2021
Jeremy Hunt, chairman of the health and social care committee, says the government and NHS need to put in a long-term plan to improve staffing levels and reduce pressure on NHS staff. He tells Sky News: "There aren't enough doctors and nurses and the long-term way to reduce pressure is to put a plan in place that guarantees we really are training enough doctors and nurses for the future." The environment secretary, George Eustice, says: "Having been through this pandemic, one of the things that we're doing is recruiting more staff and we've already recruited an extra 12,000 nurses."
