ICUs in East London are beyond full. At the moment we are just coping in extra wards because the rise in cases is slow but steady.....but it's only November.
The situation is compounded because NHS England is insisting that we continue with business as usual.
When Liverpool Hospitals failed to cope under those conditions they were then visited by the CQC and blamed for their failure.
I don't have a financial interest in hyping the situation. I wish it were over. Anyone pushing the narrative that this is flu either has no idea what they are talking about or has an ulterior motive.
I'm not hosting it on this board because it's my job to keep people alive and specious misinformation makes that more difficult.
There's no truth from the government but this is just another part of the bullshit blizzard.
The very fact that you are wondering what is going on makes my point.
