Pressures across the Health Service have been exposed: Bradshaw

COVID-19 Health Paula Bradshaw

The Alliance Party’s Health Spokesperson has said the pressures across our health service have again been laid bare – this time in Antrim.

She said: “My heart goes out to those patients who have spent hours awaiting admission and treatment at Antrim Area Hospital, while in pain and discomfort.

“The pressures felt right across our health service have been fully exposed in the images emerging this evening.

“It is clear that workforce pressures, coupled with the ongoing pandemic, have gravely impeded the Ambulance Service and Emergency Department from being able provide the patients with timely care this evening.”
