Hospitals are 'struggling to get people through A&E'

Mike Farrar from the NHS Confederation said hospitals are really "struggling to get people through A&E departments."

He said that over the last decade the number of people going to A&E has risen by 50% and the reason is because people are "unable to be cared for at home".

He added that the money needs to be redistributed to "primary community and social care" to get people living independently.
