Our emergency departments are at the point of meltdown. Most days, they are seriously overcrowded.
This jeopardises safety and puts patients at risk: there is clear evidence that death rates go up if patients requiring admission remain in emergency departments for hours whilst they wait for ward beds to become available.So here we have it from the people on the very frontline of the health service, but will Labour listen? Now it's not just some people online critiscising them. Or a group of protestores outside their office. Now it's a letter from half the A&E consultants in the whole country, will they listen?
Each of us has seen standards of care slipping in our departments, as we struggle to look after a dozen or more patients stuck in the emergency departments whilst waiting for ward beds, in addition to our normal workload.
