Beverley Turner says its clear who we should be listening to in this debate about the NHS - and it's not Jeremy Hunt.
Stephen Hawking has criticised the Tories for the party's handling of the NHS and accused Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt of "abusing" science.
The lifelong Labour supporter and world-renowned physicist said Mr Hunt was "cherry-picking" scientific research into the so-called "weekend effect".
But Mr Hunt hit back and took to Twitter to say: "Stephen Hawking is (a) brilliant physicist but wrong on lack of evidence for weekend effect."
Beverley Turner had her say on who she thinks we should side with in the heated debate, citing Mr Hunt's extremely recent "cherry-picking" of evidence.
