This news is yet another sign of an NHS in increasing distress. In 13 out of the last 15 weeks, the NHS has failed to meet the Government's lowered A&E target. It is clear that hospitals aren't coping with the pressure they are under and the failure to treat older people properly is a symptom of this.
The Tory-led Government promised patients there would be "no decision about me, without me". This unfair practice is in danger of making a mockery of that principle. He needs to explain what he will do to bring an end to it.
