Alex Salmond: 'NHS is being destroyed in England'

He said Scotland was "going in the opposite direction" and waiting lists were coming down.

Mr Salmond lambasted Labour's Peter Hain for supporting the retention of prescription charges in England while applauding their abolition in Scotland and Wales.
