Calls to stop NHS being used as 'political football'

Politicians must not use the health service as "a political football", the director of the Royal College of Nursing in Wales has said.

Tina Donnelly said political point scoring over the state of the NHS has left nurses "demoralised".

"Wouldn't it be superb to have the political parties actually agree what their strategy is as a collective for the NHS?" she told BBC Wales' Sunday Politics programme.

Health Minister Mark Drakeford said he was focused on improving the Welsh NHS.
