“An angry relative of a sick child has confronted Boris Johnson during a hospital visit, criticising the NHS as “not acceptable”.
Mr Johnson was visiting Whipps Cross University Hospital in northeast London when he was confronted by the man on a children’s ward.
In a conversation lasting around two minutes, the man claimed there were not enough doctors or nurses and accused the prime minister of visiting the hospital for a “press opportunity”.
He told Mr Johnson: “There are not enough people on this ward, there are not enough doctors, there’s not enough nurses, it’s not well organised enough.
“The NHS has been destroyed… and now you come here for a press opportunity.”
In response, the prime minister said: “There’s no press here.”
However, the man was quick to point to cameras filming the altercation, saying: “What do you mean there’s no press here, who are these people?”
