Local News

Handover delays at A&E a national scandal? Your experiences wanted

I was trawling the news sources this morning for items to post on ParamedicUK and was surprised by how many local news stories there were about handover delays at A&E departments at hospitals across the UK. I counted 12 in the past 24 hours!Having waited regularly for up to 3 hours at my local A&E in the past month it's clear this is a serious problem that is reducing the number of ambulances available for emergency calls and increasing the workload for single responders and the few ambulances left to deal with calls.ParamedicUK wants to hear about your experiences. How often do you have long waits at A&E? What is your trust doing about it?You can leave a comment here or Tweet @ParamedicUK. read more..
