Praising our great A&E team in Parliament

It was a privilege to join the brilliant doctors and nurses at James Cook University Hospital at work last weekend - and great to be able to thank them in the House of Commons yesterday.

So many of the most seriously ill patients I saw in A&E were hard drug addicts, and the strain they place on the team is tremendous. In my question to Ministers, I asked how we are going to better tackle addiction as part of the new long term plan for the NHS.
