Sir Keir is said to have said: “Instead of focusing on breaking through the pandemic and lowering waiting lists, this complacent Tory party is instead arguing over a leader whom we should have known from the outset was unfit for office.
“We are witnessing a corrupt spectacle of the Prime Minister, immersed in fraud and fraud, incapable of leading.
“When we left office 12 years ago, the Conservatives inherited a strong NHS.
“Waiting times have been the shortest so far. Today, NHS queues are the highest since the record began.
“And it’s not good enough to blame Covid for all this – this mess has been going on for a long time.
“This government must be held accountable. Why have we come to this point where the NHS itself is in critical condition?”
The opposition leader will use the speech at the conference to describe his vision of a “better health treaty” to provide people with the “security, prosperity and respect they deserve” under the Labor government.

“This reform process has stalled because this government does not care if the NHS lags behind.
“Boris Johnson is too busy defending the violation of his rule.”
