The Mid Yorkshire Hospital NHS Trust, which runs three hospitals, says it received almost 700 patients in one day alone at the start of this week.

We have a winter room that I have just come from that we manage the Trust from every day and make sure we know the situation in terms of the beds we have got, the patients coming in and where we are going to place them.

– Dr Karen Stone Medical Director, Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
