Chief Operating Officer
Suzanne has allowed me to use her message this week to relaunch our Making Every Day Count programme.
Many of you will be aware that our urgent care service has been under sustained pressure. This winter has seen record numbers of patients attending our Emergency Department and patients requiring admission.
Winter pressure is usually abated by May. We are now in July and we are still experiencing the same level of pressure. This has been constant since the New Year. And we are not alone. Nationally the last three consecutive Mondays were the busiest days the NHS has ever experienced in terms of A&E attendances in June.
