DAUK’s letter to the PM Rishi Sunak featured in Sky News

Sky News has reported on DAUK’s open letter to the PM Rishi Sunak, which states that the parliament must be recalled “immediately” so MPs can discuss the “NHS crisis”.

“Writing a letter to the PM on Wednesday, Doctors’ Association UK (DAUK) – an organisation led by frontline medical staff – and its supporters said MPs must return from their festive break before Monday 9 January.

It stated: “The NHS is broken. Patients are dying and staff are suffering moral injury from the appalling conditions.

“We are desperately in need of meaningful action from our leaders and this cannot wait.

“We therefore call on the government to immediately recall members of parliament from their Christmas recess to the House of Commons to hold an emergency debate on the state of the NHS.

“All parties must put election-based strategy aside and focus on the immediate actions that can be taken to save lives.”

Dr Yasotha Browne, EDI lead of DAUK, was also interviewed by Sky in connection to this.
