Ed Miliband: 'Cameron digging his own grave with the NHS'

Report by Chloe Culpan

Conservatives pressing ahead with NHS reforms are digging their own electoral graves, according to the Labour leader Ed Miliband.

He was speaking during rowdy Commons exchanges, after the first GP commissioning group pushed for David Cameron to scrap his Health Bill.

The group are warning the changes in the Health and Social Care Bill were getting in the way of health professional's work and was not needed to improve services to patients.

The Prime Minister played down opposition from professional bodies to his reforms, pointing out that in some cases only a small proportion of members had taken part in votes against the Bill.

The bill - which would give £60bn of NHS funds to GP-led local groups of doctors to spend on patients' treatments - is currently at report stage in the House of Lords.
