Staffing levels in the NHS are “inadequate” for patients to be receiving quality care, a major new poll of doctors suggest.
A survey of more than 7,800 clinicians from across the UK found that 91% feel staffing levels in the NHS are inadequate to deliver quality patient care.
The poll, conducted by the British Medical Association (BMA), also found that almost four fifths (78%) of medics believe that NHS resources are not good enough which “significantly affects the quality and safety of patient services”.
93% of doctors believe they are under so much pressure that it hits patient care.
