More doctors and nurses needed to ease strain on NHS after Covid – video

Jeremy Hunt, chairman of the health and social care committee, has said the government and NHS needs to put in a long-term plan to improve staffing levels and reduce pressure on NHS staff. He told 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, said: ‘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.’
