Labour leader says government has 'damaged the NHS'

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer says the government has "damaged the NHS", before adding that the "most important thing" is for the strikes to be ended. Speaking at Parliament Buildings in Belfast while on a visit to Northern Ireland, the MP says: "They [strikes] will only be ended if the government gets in the room and negotiates and so instead of grandstanding they need to govern - they need to get in the room, get on with it.".
