    New figures out today reveal that Southport Hospital's A&E was nearly 15% behind the 4 hour treatment target for A&E during December.

    The statistics show that across NHS England the average was nearly 10% below the 95% target for December, the worst figures since the target was introduced in 2004.

    Locally, the situation was even worse with Southport Hospital falling even further behind at 80.3%.

    Southport Labour had recently raised concerns about the pressures the hospital and its A&E were facing after 133 patients had been forced to wait in ambulances for between 30 minutes to an hour, with 60 of them over an hour. Bed occupancy rates had also hit 100%.

    Those concerns were dismissed by local MP Damien Moore as "scaremongering" but these latest figures show that concern was well placed says Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Southport, Liz Savage:

    "The figures out today reveal that far from "scaremongering" as Damien Moore claimed, we are right to draw attention to the pressures Southport Hospital is facing. Its A&E department is under tremendous strain and for Damien Moore to essentially ignore those pressures and make bold claims that he's confident that "those who required medical treatment were seen to efficiently" is to ignore the underlying problem."

    "The problem is not with the staff who are doing a fantastic job in the most trying of circumstances, the problem is with the chronic lack of resources supplied by this Tory administration to the NHS to deal with the demands placed on it. We are right to be worried, I expect an awful lot of people are, except our local MP it seems. "

    Labour once again using the NHS as a Political football. Perhaps if the NHS didnít do such a good job of making people better, lots more people would die, freeing up beds that other sick people could occupy.....until they died, freeing up beds,,,,,well you know where this is going.

    I see according to the rabid right, if people would just do the "decent" thing and hurry up and die, NHS problems would dissipate, remember any one of us could be very ill at any time and given the chance most of us will get old, wonder if those opinions will still hold?

    As far as the NHS locally is concerned the only loony around here is that puppet Moore, mouthing the approved line without the slightest awareness of what is actually happening, the Tories have instigated cuts on top of cuts, the chickens are now coming home to roost in a big way, all the alleged "savings" will be history as it will cost a whole lot more just to rectify the wilful damage committed than if proper funding had been maintained.

    Oh dear, how pathetic, were do you get the idea that I am in any way connected, supportive or interested in the Lib-Dems.

    I can assure you that I despise, detest and distrust the Tories totally and would certainly never support a bunch of weak kneed wannabes who sold themselves and their supporters down the river.

    Would you like to make an intelligent comment or are you limited to insults and attempted derision? as so many of your ilk are.
