Doctors at hospitals in the Black Country and Staffordshire have raised ‘very serious concerns’ over the safety of patients in a letter to the Prime Minister calling for an urgent increase in funding and beds.

The leaked document sent to Theresa May by emergency consultants claim hospitals are in crisis due to the failure of front line plans to deal with the current winter pressures.

They describe the compromise of safety at hospitals as ‘intolerable’ and the NHS as ‘severely and chronically underfunding’, while also publicly apologising to patients for failing to ‘fulfil our pledge for a safe efficient service’.
