Norfolk: Hospital Promises A&E Changes For Bank Holiday Demand

The Norfolk and Norwich Hospital has told Heart it has made changes after queues of ambulances over the last bank holiday.

Over Easter a tent had to be set up after patients waited hours to be treated.  At one point 17 ambulances were queuing to bring their patients into A and E. 

The tent didn't need to be used in the end but it raised concerns about how equipped the hospital was to deal with extra demand over the holidays.

Now bosses at the hospital insist they have made changes and are better prepared for this bank holiday weekend.

Chris Cobb is the Director of Medicine at the N and N and spoke to Heart reporter Hannah Griffiths:
