NHS crisis: how bad is it?

NHS strikes, healthcare facility waiting times and nurses leaving– it’s a discussion that has actually extended back for many years: the NHS in crisis.

Practically 55,000 individuals waited more than 12 hours in A&E last month.

And the Royal College of Emergency Medicine approximates as much as 500 individuals are passing away a week as an outcome of these hold-ups.

The federal government states its putting record financing into health and social care, however is this more than a crisis– is it an existential emergency situation for an NHS that requires significant reform?

In today’s episode of the Fourcast we talk to our health and social care editor, Victoria Macdonald, about her experience on the frontline of the NHS, how we got here and what steps the federal government might require to enhance the state of our NHS.
