Survey finds A&E departments understaffed

September 9, 2013 8:22 am

A BBC 5 live survey has claimed that England’s accident and emergency departments are understaffed on average by nearly 10%. The picture was worst in London, with the largest proportion of vacancies found in four trusts in the capital. The Department of Health said A&E staffing was an ongoing problem, but action was being taken. The figures were published as the Government prepare to announce this week how £500 million of extra funding for the nation’s A&E departments will be allocated.
