Speaking at the Labour party annual conference in Liverpool on Tuesday, Mr Miliband received a standing ovation and the largest applause during his speech when he warned ‘you can’t trust the Tories with the NHS’.
He said the government's reform plans will undermine the values of the NHS as the reorganisation will create a ‘free-market healthcare system’.
The Labour leader also criticised prime minister David Cameron, outlining that he 'betrayed voters' trust' by U-turning on his election promise to end top-down reorganisations in the NHS.
Mr Miliband said: ‘When I look at everything this Tory government is doing, frankly it is the NHS that shocks me most. Why? Because David Cameron told us he was different. You remember. The posters. The soundbites.
‘David Cameron knew the British people did not trust the Tories with the NHS. So he told us he wasn't the usual type of Tory. And he asked for your trust. And then he got into Downing Street. And within a year he'd gone back on every word he said.’
