When you see his lips move.
Here’s a promise from 11th April this year:
Andrew Lansley, the[n]shadow health secretary, said: “For Labour’s campaign to deliberately distress or scare sufferers from breast cancer is shameful. Because we are going to increase the NHS budget in real terms and cut bureaucracy and waste, we will have the capacity to ensure that cancer patients are seen sooner than they are at the moment and to meet the quality standards that they expect.
And here’s a quote from the Health spending section, page 43, of the Spending Review:
To ensure spending is focused on priorities, some programmes announced by the previous government but not yet implemented will not be taken forward.
This includes free prescriptions for people with long term conditions, the right to one-to-one nursing for cancer patients and the target of a one week wait for cancer diagnostics.
