We understand the hospital has been under a lot of pressure in recent days due to an unusually high number of patients seeking emergency medical care. We have been in touch with the Chief Executive and are assured that this is an exceptional and temporary situation due to a prevalence of acute health conditions this winter. We are confident that he and his staff will continue to deal with the pressures.
The hospital has received an additional £1 million of funding to help cope with winter pressures. We are committed to making sure our hospital has the resources it needs and will continue to lobby for further support.
