Women in labour turned away by maternity unitsSOMEONE TELL MICHAEL MOORE - AND HILLARY AND OBAMA: THE NHS PROVES THAT TAXPAYER-FUNDED UNIVERSAL CARE DOESN'T WORK VERY WELL.

They disclosed that maternity wards in almost 10% of trusts closed their doors to new admissions on at least 10 days last year. One trust in North Yorkshire closed 39 times between October and January because it did not have enough staff to provide a safe service.
