British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited Whipps Cross Hospital in east London on Wednesday, where he was accosted by a father whose 7-day-old daughter was receiving treatment there.

Omar Salem said to Johnson, in front of media cameras, "The NHS is being destroyed, and now you come here for a press opportunity."

The prime minister denied that it was a press opportunity, to which Salem responded — as he gestured to the cameras — "Who are these people?"

In a subsequent tweet, the father said his daughter had been “neglected for hours” the previous night while “gravely ill.”
