Queens hospital critical incident

The revelation that Queens hospital declared an “internal critical incident” on 12 March due to bed pressures at the hospital is a massive concern to all local residents. The critical incident means that the management at the hospital will have to seek support from other hospitals across London and elsewhere in order to cope with demand for health care and hospital admissions.

Jon Cruddas MP | Spring Budget Response 2024

I say it after every Budget over these past 14 years, but what we have been given is more smoke and mirrors. Like previous Tory Budgets it will yet again be working people who fall foul of the Government’s sleight of hand and the services we all depend on will further deteriorate. People will conclude that 14 years has led to the country being worse off and living standards for working people have worsened.
