I refer to the comments made to the Health Committee by Jim Mackey, the head of NHS Improvement back at the start of October, three months ago:

“It is true that we are running tighter than any of us would really want to and we have not had the impact from the social care investment this year that we had hoped for;
so, it will be difficult—it will be very tight—over winter.”

This Government knew what was coming, yet they have let the whole country down.
