The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has warned that the NHS is "sleepwalking into a crisis", saying that huge staff reductions come as there is a soaring demand for care.
The ageing population and the increasing number of people living with long-term conditions mean that demand for services continues to rise.
The organisation is calling on ministers to prevent NHS trusts from "continuing with this damaging agenda of cuts" that "impact on patient care".
