Labour seeks summit to solve A&E crisis

Labour has called on the Government to hold an urgent summit on how to alleviate pressure on A&E services in English hospitals. The party said local government, emergency services and other NHS professionals all needed to agree on co-ordinated action. In a letter to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, shadow health secretary Andy Burnham said there had been a “failure” to anticipate the situation. He suggested the problem was linked to a loss of social care capacity provided by councils this winter.
