Responding to new Labour Party analysis published today (Friday) suggesting NHS staff work one million hours of unpaid overtime each week, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:
“The NHS is running on fumes after years of underfunding. Chronic understaffing has left us with a system propped up by the goodwill of devoted health workers.
“It is no way to run a cherished national asset and is the terrible legacy of nine years under the Conservatives. We need a government prepared to invest properly in the NHS.”
