CSP responds to NHS England's measures to address winter pressures

Flu epidemic hits UK Hospitals over Christmas 'Drunk tanks' needed to tackle 'selfish' revellers
Ben Pena | 14 January, 2018, 09:51

Non urgent procedures and some outpatient appointments have been cancelled until at least next month to help A&E departments cope with winter demand. When patients are in crowded emergency departments and staff can not actually move between patients and provide the basic level of care that's required, then safety is compromised.

Stevens, who is chief executive of NHS England, said that revellers who divert the attentions of the ambulance service and A&E staff due to overindulgence are "selfish" and called for the public to "use the NHS responsibly" all year round. I can not overstate that.

"We have a good working relationship with the West Midlands Ambulance Service and will continue to work together to make sure patients are assessed, treated and handed over as quickly and efficiently as possible".

The hospital has opened an unprecedented number of escalation beds in order to provide care for acutely unwell patients.

But many other hospitals have come under the cosh since Christmas too amid very cold weather in some places. "You can't get anymore people in it". Dr Adrian Boyle of The Royal College of Emergency Medicine said the situation could lead to "avoidable deaths" and that "everybody is struggling at the moment". "This is just delaying problems for later on".

Doctors have described corridors overflowing with patients and ambulances queuing outside A&E as the winter flu season begins to take hold. But he was then called back to work at midnight because so many patients needed help, and stayed until 4am.

'We won't accept insults from Trump' - Nana Addo
Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of SC , also present at the gathering, said he confronted the president over his racy comments . Bush, Obama and Trump , at the Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, according to Vox.

Ms Major added: "We have also worked very hard to eliminate mixed sex accommodation over a number of years and so we do not intend to consider placing patients in mixed sex accommodation during this busy period unless it is a matter of clinical safety for that patient at that time".

"Mid Yorkshire is no better or worse than anywhere else", he said.

While the NHS faces increased pressure in the New Year, the service seems to be under even more strain now compared to previous years. This is the same for doctors and therapists. "Diagnostic facilities in hospitals will be swamped - a vicious circle of increased need causing longer delays in whole system", he added.

Only seven NHS hospital trusts out of 153 have had average bed occupancy below 85 per cent this December - down from 17 at the same time a year ago.

Jeremy Hunt must urgently tell us how many elective operations he expects to be cancelled and how many more people will be waiting longer in pain and anguish because their scheduled operation has had to be cancelled.

England's chief nurse, Jane Cummings, said that people need to think about how they use the NHS in the face of a cash crisis. "Relentless and staff have been brilliant".
