Report warns hospitals on 'brink of collapse'

A new report from the Royal College of Physicians says that many hospitals are on the 'brink of collapse' because of a lack of beds and staff shortages.

Doctors are warning that hospitals now have a third fewer beds than 25 years ago, and they're struggling to cope with an increase in older patients with conditions such as dementia.

Health minister and Suffolk MP Dan Poulter says more can be done to improve care.

In today's Royal College of Physicians report, it is claimed there are a third fewer hospital beds than 25 years ago, despite an increase in emergency admissions.

Nearly two thirds of people admitted to hospital are over 65 and many have dementia.

And their biggest concern - hospital patients can be moved four or five times during their stay, often with no formal handover by staff.
