Cambridgeshire health services could face a £250m shortfall by 2021.

Cambridge's MP, Daniel Zeichner, spoke out against the cuts that reportedly could see the NHS in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough £250m short of funding that it would need to balance the books.

He also demanded an apology from the Brexit Leave campaign, referring to the infamous slogan emblazoned across the Leave campaign bus.

Mr Zeichner said:"Hardworking staff at Addenbrooke's and in doctors surgeries are doing their best but the truth is there is a black hole in NHS funding.

"Medical services are being given unrealistic financial targets to meet in little known Sustainability and Transformation Plans and services will suffer.

"It's time for the Government to stop giving the NHS bitter pills to swallow and properly fund our precious service.

"The people of Cambridge also deserve an apology from Vote Leave campaigners about their outrageous £350m NHS claim."
