Two thirds of voters believe there is a crisis in A&E departments and patients are being put at risk, according to a survey by Survation, which found:
- 65% blamed Government cuts for any staff shortages and poor levels of care
- 75% said doctors and nurses were doing their best while being overworked
- 65% said consultants should be forced to work weekends and nights to ease the crisis
- 43% backed pay cuts for any who refuse
Professor Keith Willett, the doctor leading the emergency services reform, warned that up to 6.5 million people a year are wrongly going to A&E when they could be treated by GPs, paramedics or even chemists.
