Archbishop criticises NHS

15th February 2010

Archbishop Vincent Nichols, the head of the Catholic church in England and Wales, has said areas of the health service lack 'compassion'.

In an interview with the BBC, the archbishop said the majority of patients were happy with the care they received from the NHS. He added: "But also many people know of stories, where they have felt particularly their elderly and dying family members have not received that full measure of the compassion which the NHS sets as its highest standard."
