Emergency admissions reach record high

Comment

4:46 sadly, your misplaced optimism has already been proved wrong. This year, every CCG has invested money in admission prevention and yet the numbers just went up. This is exactly what been found in every well-conducted study in this area. Pity the poor hospitals. We're drowning in patients, 75% now in deficit, with no financial support and monitor breathing down our necks, while the money is frittered away on pipe dreams.
