A&E safety risks “should serve as a wake-up call”   

A&E safety risks “should serve as a wake-up call”   

UKIP Wales Health Spokesman Caroline Jones has expressed her shock and disappointment at a letter by hospital consultants that revealed safety risks in Welsh A&E departments.

The letter, penned by a group of emergency hospital consultants, outlined a catalogue of failures, noting that, “…plans have fallen well short of what was required to maintain adequate care for our patients”.

The letter goes on to state: “We have neither sufficient staff nor sufficient beds to cope with the needs of an ageing population”.

Caroline Jones AM commented: “This letter by emergency hospital consultants should serve as a wake-up call to the Welsh Government. I am shocked and disappointed by it.

Action must be taken at the earliest opportunity, and I will be writing to Cabinet Secretary Vaughan Gething to highlight my concerns.”
