Emergency departments heading for 'worst winter on record', warns BMA

Hospital emergency care departments in England are heading for the worst winter on record and will need up to 10,000 more beds to care for patients safely, according to new analysis from the British Medical Association (BMA).

The BMA’s analysis shows that more than 300,000 patients could be left for more than four hours on trolleys in emergency care departments before being admitted.
