Health Select Committee has said emergency care in hospitals "needs to change" and hospital officials must address low staffing levels in emergency departments and ensure more comprehensive out-of-hours cover from consultants.
A report by the committee in to A&Es says:
"Staffing levels in emergency departments are an area of considerable concern to the Committee. They are not sufficient to meet demand, with only 17% of emergency departments managing to provide 16 hour consultant coverage during the working week.
"The situation is even worse at weekends and consultant staffing levels are nowhere near meeting recommended best practice. "
