1:33 pm
recognition that there is only one way to get brexit done, and that's to vote for us and to vote for the conservatives. that's all from the bbc news at one, so it's goodbye from me, and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc‘s news teams where you are. a small good afternoon. i'm 0lly foster at the bbc sport centre. former manchester city captain vincent kompa ny says that his old side can still catch liverpool in the title race. they lost 3—1 at anfield yesterday, and trail the league leaders by nine points. there was a frantic start to the game. city felt they should have had a penalty when trent alexander arnold handled in the box. their misery compounded by liverpool's opener from fabinho, coming just 21 seconds later. mo salah made it 2—0
1:34 pm
before sadio mane sealed the victory, though city did pull one back. pep guardiola appeared less then genuine as he applauded the referees for their performance at full—time. city are fourth, a point behind leicester and chelsea, they have been crowned champions twice now, back to back. i don't see why the defeat yesterday would cast any doubt. i know if i was in the middle of the dressing room i would have been thinking, we created a lot of chances against a very strong liverpool, more chances probably than in previous years when we went to anfield. and nine points is really — it's something you can overcome. but with a busy winter period coming, i would still believe. the video assistant referee was again under the spotlight yesterday, with that early penalty appeal. neil swarbrick is head of implementation for var in the premier league.
1:35 pm
he told me that it could take two or three years before they are completely happy with how the system is used. we have officiated 70 games in the caribou cup, fa cup for the last two seasons trying to get experience. caribou cup, fa cup for the last two seasons trying to get experiencem is nothing like ten premier league games every weekend. we know there are going to be people looking at our every move. but i am comfortable with where we are and no doubt there is room for improvement. we will get there. but for me it is a work in progress. arsene wenger appears to have ruled himself out of taking over at bayern munich, although has admitted that he was approached. the german champions sacked nico kovac last week, after a poor run of results. i'm out of this. first of all, i never was a candidate. i had been approached.
1:36 pm
and i'm not in the running for thejob. you were neither approached nor are you running for the job? i was approached. but you never felt you were a candidate for the job? i am not a candidate for thejob. there's been another medalfor great britain in at the world para—atheletics in dubai this morning. jo butterfield has won silver in club throw. yesterday, aled davies won in the shot put. after the arrival of his baby girl just seven weeks ago, davies says he's found a new inspiration. i have always kind of struggled for motivation because i have won everything. so i have always put pressure on myself to throw further. but, to be honest, it is not about me anymore. it is about this little one. and if i can show her what i do on the big stage then i can retire a happy man. let's hope that this is the start of a few more titles to come. the atp tennis finals at london's 02 arena continue today,

1:38 pm
for the liberal democrats. borisjohnson denied he had offered a deal to nigel farage. look, absolutely not. but what i can say is i am glad there is a recognition that there is only one waited to get brexit done and that is to vote for us, to vote for the conservatives. we have a fantastic plan for this country. we are spending more on health and education, investing in police here in the west midlands. all sorts of wonderful things. all that would be somewhat easier if we were to get brexit over the line. but i hope people will understand that the only way to move our country forward, to unleash the potential of the old trigger ways to deliver brexit by january, is only the conservatives can. that was the prime minister.
1:39 pm
throughout the election we are encouraging you to send us your questions. earlier we had a look at health. this morning i need was joined by erling buckingham from the nuffield trust. it started with a question from moreno asked if scotla nd question from moreno asked if scotland voted for independence, would it still have access to the national health service. we talk about having a national health service. what we have are four national health services in the four countries of the united kingdom. scotla nd countries of the united kingdom. scotland already runs its own health service. for people of the border of england and scotland we have got arrangements in place so that if you are in england and you are over the border, you get treated and vice ve rsa . border, you get treated and vice versa. what we need to look at in the event of a scottish referendum voting for independence is how the rules we currently have a work in the future. right now it is nothing for people to worry about. it is something that event the respective
1:40 pm
government would be thinking about. judy asks if it is more expensive to provide bursaries and train nurses from the uk or bring in nurses from abroad. this is getting at gaps in a number of staff needed. yes, what judy has probably heard is that we have currently got a big shortage of nurses in the uk. in that we think we are about 40,000 nurses assured. and so it is not as simple as one or the other. in the short term it is probably cheaper to bring in nurses from overseas. what we need to do is make sure that we are doing that ethically, so we are not taking nurses from countries that need them themselves. we also need to invest so we can train nurses in this country. in the short term, probably cheaper overseas. in the long term, better value if we can train those nurses themselves. the cost would
1:41 pm
depend on whether the nurses are trained by the nhs or they are agency nurses? yes, much cheaper for the nhs to employ nurses, including those from overseas, then it is to use agency or bank are people who do individual shifts. that is much more expensive for the nhs. the next question relates to potential staff shortages. it is from liz who asked, how can we address the drain of newly qualified doctors going to work abroad after training? well, this is very much about working —— making the nhs will replace for junior doctors to work. we see from surveys ofjunior doctors junior doctors to work. we see from surveys of junior doctors in particular that we still have places in the nhs where people feel discriminated against, particularly people from an ethnic minority. those are things the nhs has recognised and definitely needs to address. it is about making sure that when people come to work as
1:42 pm
junior doctors, they have a good experience. it is a big step from becoming a medical student becoming a doctor. we need to make sure people feel supported and taking the big step. they have got good leadership to do that. and they have gotan leadership to do that. and they have got an opportunity to have a good worklife balance. just a brief supplementary to bring in there. do you feel that so far in this campaign we have heard very much about the nhs relative to other subjects? i think it is fair to say the nhs has been quite central in the nhs has been quite central in the campaign. we have heard things about pensions and how that has affected doctors and health care professionals. the tone is to be later in their career. bobby says he is leaning towards voting for conservatives but is worried about privatisation of the nhs. what is the truth about what they are planning? right, it is really not for me to be able to say which way your viewers should vote. but i can
1:43 pm
set out a few facts about how the nhs works with the private sector. the first thing to say is people probably don't realise how much nhs ca re probably don't realise how much nhs care is provided by the private sector no. when you go to see your gp, most gps are independent providers, they are businesses that have a contract with the nhs. quite a lot of these patient transport services are provided by the private sector. community services are in some cases. almost anywhere in england, if you need surgery then you have a right to choose to go to the private sector. it is there already. when we look at the figures, if you take out gps, who most people would regard as part of the nhs, the amount of money the nhs spends on the private sector, things like hospitals etc, is about 7% or 8% of its budget. it does not chase very much. we can look at how the private sector works with the nhs.
1:44 pm
that is something i think all the parties are commenting on. but actually, it is a reality no. there is no reason to think that you would -- it is no reason to think that you would —— it will be a significant issue. what we don't know from the question is whether it refers to a discussion around whether there could be a linkup between the uk and the us in a future trade deal poster brexit with relation, in relation to the nhs? yes, that has been in the media in recent weeks. there are a couple of issues. one is about us health ca re of issues. one is about us health care companies providing us —— uk health care services. that option is open to them now and we haven't seen any significant uptake in recent yea rs. any significant uptake in recent years. the other factor which we think might be more of an issue is around drug costs and the amount of money that we in the hs pay for medicines. that is lower than for medicines. that is lower than for medicines in the us. we think it is something the us wants to look at it near future trade deal. clearly a deal is a deal. it has two parties.
1:45 pm
just because it is something the us wa nts to just because it is something the us wants to look at, doesn't mean it will necessarily have a significant cost to the nhs for the future. one more question from john, who asks if the nhs waiting time targets have been abandoned by the government in recent years? they are still very real. we look at the nhs report on the monthly or quarterly basis. they have not been abandoned. the nhs is finding it harder to meet those standards. there is a standard that says 95% of people when they come to the emergency department should be treated or admitted to hospital within four hours. we have not read that standard since july 2015. everybody who needs an operation should be seen and treated within 18 weeks. about should be seen and treated within18 weeks. about 15% have been waiting longer. it is getting harderfor the other to meet those standards and thatis other to meet those standards and that is because we have got more
1:46 pm
people, more sick people, basically, more people blue need health care. the amount of supply in the nhs, staff, hospital services, the amount of supply in the nhs, staff, hospitalservices, hasn't kept up with that in recent years because investment has not kept up. that is something that has impacted on delivery. the targets are still there. they are very real. and throughout the election campaign we'll be putting your questions to all of the main parties. today at half past five, we'll be joined by the deputy leader of the liberal democrats, sir ed davey. so if you have anything you want to ask, please do get in touch, using the contact details on screen, and we'll put those questions to him. in a boost for borisjohnson, nigel farage says the brexit party will not field candidates in any of the seats won by the tories in 2017 meanwhile, the two largest parties are marking armistice day by promising measures to support
