We have all noticed delays when needing medical attention.  A spot visit to Queen Alexandra Hospital has highlighted problems of delay in A&E.  

When anyone suffers an illness or injury requiring medical treatment, they expect a level of treatment that suits the severity of their injury.  When that treatment is delayed their condition may well worsen,  sometimes to the point it becomes critical or even fatal.  

In a cash strapped NHS savings sought with lower staff numbers can only serve to increase illness which for society is no real saving at all.  in the worst cases, this also only serves to increase claims where failed treatment could have save significant loss for individuals and their families.
