Three Devon emergency consultants sign letter to Theresa May on ‘intolerable safety compromises’ in A&E winter crisis

Posted on

Three leading Devon emergency clinicians, from different hospitals, are among doctors from 68 hospital trusts across England and Wales who have signed an urgent letter to the Prime Minister saying “the current level of safety compromise is at times intolerable, despite the best efforts of staff.” They demand more hospital beds and more money for social care.

They are Ann Hicks, Plymouth Hospitals Trust, Liam Kevern, Northern Devon Healthcare Trust and Nick Mathieu, Torbay and South Devon Foundation Trust. No one from the RD&E signed the letter – but does this mean that things are OK there?
