NHS treated dad like 'cow waiting to die', Nicola Sturgeon told

This current level of safety compromise is at times intolerable, despite the best efforts of staff.

There are 25 or more ambulances and urgent patients waiting outside at this hospital alone.

Health service data shows flu rates are continuing to rise, with one in five hospital cases suffering from the most deadly strain, dubbled "Aussie flu" after it fuelled the country's worst flu season for more than two decades.

A&E figures show that the target of seeing 95% of patients within four hours has not been met since July 2015.

She said: "It will take some time for services to recover from the pressures being felt this winter and for the spikes in flu levels to subside".

Leading health figures from Sefton Council, NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS Southport and Formby CCG have joined together to offer expert advice to residents on how they can best avoid catching the flu in the coming months.

'I, Tonya' is a smash with Utah audiences - but why?

Ms Davidson said there were nearly 2,000 fewer hospital beds in Scotland than there were five years ago, when the total was more than 23,000.

"But this SNP government has cut both hospital beds and elderly social care places, so when something like a flu crisis hits, the system breaks down".

A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said it had experienced an "exceptionally high level of demand" in the first week of the year, with a 44 per cent increase in immediately life-threatening incidents.

We acknowledge that our Trusts and local CCGs are doing everything they can to create capacity and more beds in the short term, and we are grateful to them for their continued assistance in such a time of crisis.

It calls for an increase in social care funding to allow patients to be cared in the community, freeing up beds, and a review on the number of hospital beds.

"In spite of all that thanks to winter planning, thanks to the efforts of our NHS staff, our NHS is coping admirably".

Leonard raised Mr Wilson's case to the First Minister after his son wrote to the health secretary earlier this week.

Mr Leonard read out extracts from Mr Wilson's letter, in which he claimed his father - who was eventually diagnosed with flu - "could have died" if his condition had been more serious.

He said Mr Wilson later spent 13 hours on a trolley in the accident and emergency unit.

"We are tenth outside all in ambulances containing patients now waiting to be admitted to the hospital", Ms Butler-Smith wrote on, as they waited in the queue. We will do our best to keep you anonymous.

Ms Sturgeon responded: "I say sorry to Mr Wilson if that was his experience".

He said he was "so fed up of the lies" and claims the NHS is fine that he wanted to go public with his dad's story, adding: "I am lucky it was just the flu and cuts and bruises, as if it was anything else he could have died waiting that long on an ambulance".

Pep Guardiola: 'Manchester City have to remain focused'
We have a lot of people here [at City] to take care of them, but the schedule does not protect the player. I've played in foreign leagues and they are nothing like our league - it's brilliant".

"That is down to the fact that we are facing demand and increases in demand that are unprecedented". The letter states that the NHS has, "insufficient hospital and community beds and staff of all disciplines especially at the front door to cope with our ageing population's health needs".
