Andy Burnham criticises NHS job threat

The shadow health secretary has criticised the government for its "needless re-organisation" of the NHS.

He was speaking after a Royal College of Nursing report warned that nearly 50,000 jobs were under threat.

He told the BBC's Nicholas Owen: "Nurses are being handed their P45s and patients are being told they have to wait longer".
