NHS row risks 'unnecessary barrier,' Kirsty Williams says

Politicians are being urged to stop fighting over the NHS and ensure the border between England and Wales does not become an "unnecessary barrier" to people wanting good treatment.

It follows a bitter row between the Welsh and UK governments over Labour's running of the Welsh NHS.

Now an English border trust, which treats Welsh patients, is in special measures.

Welsh Liberal Democrats leader Kirsty Williams has called for unity.

But Jesse Norman, Conservative MP for Hereford and South Herefordshire, says people in Wales should be more worried about the NHS in Wales than Hereford's hospital.
