A superb report on A&E under pressure

My attention has been drawn by an employee at West Cumberland Hospital to an excellent article by Robert Colville which appeared in the Daily Telegraph on Friday, based on some time spent observing what was happening in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. The title refers to A&E in crisis but the article covers the whole hospital system.

It is an account of a system under enormous pressure - and which would be under enormous pressure whoever was in government - to which most of the human beings involved are responding magnificently but which should be of concern to all of us.

The article and a short video clip are available on the Telegraph website here and it should be read by anyone with an interest in the NHS.
