Dr Saleyha Ahsan on NHS 'humanitarian crisis' claims

The prime minister rejected the Red Cross' description of the NHS as being in a "humanitarian crisis" but it was "proportionate", says Saleyha Ahsan.

The A&E doctor and former British Army Captain Saleyha Ahsan made a personal film for BBC1's This Week on life working in the NHS in England.

She claimed: "Without radical action, like any other humanitarian crisis, this could spiral out of control and risk more lives."
