'Severe Shortage Of Beds' At Addenbrooke's

2 June 2015, 12:03

We're being warned of a 'severe lack of bed's at the A & E department at Cambridge's Addenbrooke's Hospital.

A Spokesperson at Addenbrooke's Hospital has said,

"We are exceptionally busy today. Yesterday 320 people came to A&E. The same time last year we saw 281 patients.  Addenbrooke's, like hospitals across the country, has seen unprecedented levels of demand and we are experiencing a severe shortage of beds.

"We would therefore ask people not to attend A&E unless they have an emergency or life-threatening condition. Please call 111, visit your GP or go to the local pharmacist for minor illnesses. More information is available on the Choose Well website."
