Mr Corbyn raised some troubling cases - including that of Chris, whose 94-year-old grandfather had to wait four hours for an ambulance and a whistleblower who claimed 80 patients had died waiting in an ambulance in a three week period. Mrs May said it was about more than money and quoted statistics suggesting the NHS was not in crisis.

And here is BBC Parliamentary correspondent Mark D'Arcy's verdict:Jeremy Corbyn sort of won that. The Labour leader had some well prepared questions and evoked the horrible scenes of distressed patients that appeared on the news earlier this week. The prime minister parried his complaints with statistics - so it was a match between passion and figures. And passion won.Mr Corbyn did not propose solutions beyond calling for more money to be spent, but the manner of the PM's response left her vulnerable to his charge that she is "in denial" about the state of the NHS. She was much better, because she was much more spontaneous, when she was asked about restrictions on the availability of smear tests.The foreign secretary wasn't there. Perhaps it was just as well. The mockery of his Channel bridge proposal, and the Opposition's gleeful support of his call for a cash injection for the NHS would have made for an uncomfortable 45 minutes on the front bench. And the attacks he prompted will not stop with this question time….Oh and Education Minister Anne Milton's performance answering an Urgent Question on the President's Club "charity dinner" suggests the government has found a new front bench star. Her light was hidden under a bushel while she was deputy chief whip, but she gave a masterclass in how to answer a difficult question in a way that was personal, passionate and effective… the PM should take a moment to watch and learn.
