PMQs: Cameron and Miliband on nursing numbers

Party leaders clashed over the numbers of medical staff in English hospitals as they debated the Keogh report into 11 hospitals with high mortality rates.

Ed Miliband said there were 4,000 fewer nurses since his party left office in 2010.

But David Cameron said eight of the 11 hospitals put into special measures on Tuesday had more nurses than in 2010, adding: "All well-run hospitals will have the right number of nurses and doctors and care assistants".
