The comic admitted he wouldn’t normally open up that much on camera, but he became overcome with emotion.
Johnny’s close relationship with his mother led to anger directed at Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his handling of the NHS.
His comments came in November 2019 before the general election, in which the health service was a key issue for voters.
The comedian’s late mother Patricia had been in and out of hospital at the time, and found that the emergency department was “full to capacity”.
Taking to Twitter, Johnny expressed his anger towards the Conservative Government while expressing sympathy for NHS staff.
He said: “Three hour wait on an ambulance but A&E had to close its doors, full to capacity. Why be angry at the incredible folk working under unbelievable stress?
“I remain grateful, my bitterness belongs to @BorisJohnson @Conservatives at your neglect of our @NHSuk & blatant drive to privatise.”
She added that spaces couldn’t be cleared as there were no more beds for additional patients.
Johnny responded: “Yet Georgina, they’d have us blame you for providing the best care you are allowed & funded to provide.
“How you manage to do it with such conscientious & ongoing commitment humbles me. They want patients & yourselves demoralised to the point that we surrender our @NHSuk Never!”
During the election campaign, the Conservative Party made pledges to increase funding in the NHS.

Prime Minister Johnson’s party also pledged to build 40 new NHS hospitals.
The Conservative Party’s manifesto said they were proud “to have begun work on building 40 new hospitals across the country”.
It added: “We will build and fund them over the next 10 years.”
The claim came under scrutiny as experts argued the £2.7billion investment would fund new facilities on existing hospitals.
Johnny has also been a vocal critic of the Government’s course on Brexit.
Prior to the 2016 referendum, he hit out at the Leave campaign on Twitter.
He said: “I’ve had far more people trying to scare me into leaving and far less convincing reasons as to why we’ll benefit from #Brexit.”
