A Winter Wonderland...?

On the 8th September 2017 the Department of Health announced a new £13 million pound fund to help the NHS prepare for winter.

Minister of State for Health Philip Dunne said "This funding will give more hospitals the boost they need to streamline patient flow in A&E, freeing up A&Es to care for the sickest patients and helping make sure all patients get the right treatment in the right place as quickly as possible."

The funding will be used to help hospitals and ambulance services finalise preparations ahead of winter, particularly to handle the large volumes of patients attending A&E. By investing in the necessary equipment or infrastructure, hospitals will be able to target improvements to patient flow and relieve pressure on A&E.
