Is Scarborough Hospital facing a crisis?

Responding to Mrs May's comments, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it was "not good enough" to say the problems are "frustrating" and "disappointing", stating that the "Tory government has caused this crisis". Finance Secretary Derek Mackay said he had been told by experts that attempting to raise more would backfire because wealthy people would rearrange their affairs to pay less.

The figures for Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust showed that 79 ambulances were delayed for between 30 minutes and an hour, while 13 were held up for longer than one hour.

Occupancy levels have soared past the 85 per cent threshold recommended for patient safety - hitting 93.8 per cent in north Cumbria hospitals on New Year's Eve and 99.1 per cent within those in the south.

But he said: "That doesn't mean there isn't huge pressure".

However The Independent spoke to two people cancelled, cancelled at very short notice.

"That seems pretty short notice to me", he said.

Patients are being forced to sleep on the floor at a hospital in West Yorkshire as the NHS winter crisis threatens to stretch Britain's health service to breaking point.

Policy decisions that have left the NHS in this position have been made by successive governments and only a root and branch overhaul of the way it is funded will end these winters of discontent.

"So we are working really hard to come up with solutions for that, but we are asking for your help as well, by choosing the right services".

"The service is likely to face another three months of exceptional need for care, and it is starting from a precarious position".

Guidelines warn ambulance staff to transfer patients to the care of doctors within 15 minutes of arrival so they can attend other 999 calls.
