Why is the NHS in crisis before the next wave of Covid hits?

Posted on

I share another tweet I have posted this morning:

I have not seen this story anywhere but in The Independent (whose health correspondent, Shaun Lintern, is excellent).

I do not know why the NHS is already facing an A&E crisis before the Covid next wave takes off, and in the height of summer, but it would seem as though something is very wrong indeed with healthcare in the UK if this is the case.

We may have a very dark few months ahead.

And when it is over the question has to be asked as to how we can have an NHS fit for purpose again.
