From BBC Northern Ireland today:
A third Northern Ireland hospital has urged people to stay away except in cases of medical emergency.
On Sunday the Western Trust said 38 people were waiting in the South West Acute Hospital’s emergency department and 15 waiting to be admitted.
The Ulster and Craigavon Hospitals also said they were under extreme pressure.
Dr Alan Stout, British Medical Association NI’s GP committee chair, said this was a sign of just how sick people are.
He said it was not about access to GPs, and patients “largely needed to be in ED”.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-58380119
Imagine that was in Scotland?
Patients told to stay away!
Their BMA rep suggesting that there is not a shortage of staff in GP practices!
No mention anywhere of the NI Health Secretary.
No one ‘accused.’
You can hear the opposition politicians on Reporting Scotland now, see their faces.
Just like BBC Wales and BBC UK/England, health issues not politicised.
Scotland? Easy meat for the rodents.
