Prime Minister Boris Johnson visits Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge

Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge this morning (Thursday, October 31).

The Prime Minister was given a tour around the hospital where he spoke to staff and patients.

Speaking at the hospital, he said: “The NHS has been there for all of us. We’re investing more than ever before so it can provide world-class care.”

He was reportedly booed out of the hospital.

Today marks Mr Johnson's 100th day in office and he previously claimed he would rather "be dead in a ditch" than extend Brexit beyond October 31, before requesting a fresh delay from the EU.

One angry student doctor has unleashed an epic rant about the PM's visit to Addenbrooke's.

Julia Simons, 23, told reporters that no one in the hospital even knew the Prime Minister was coming, and she only found after ending up on a corridor he was walking down.

Responding to today's visit, Green Party Cambridge candidate, Jeremy Caddick, said: "Neither Johnson nor his plans for Brexit are welcome in Cambridge. Cambridge firmly rejects his damaging plans for Brexit.

"His posturing at Addenbrookes when his party have starved the NHS of funds is beyond irony. The danger is that if he wins this election he plans to sell the NHS, the jewel in our national crown, to Trump's America. We must stop him."
