NHS Forth Valley "sorry" patients have experienced longer waits in A&E

Flu map of Britain shows worst hit areas as Australian flu spreads

The latest figures released by NHS Digital show bed occupancy rates have been at 100pc at JPUH from December 27 to January 7.

The flu status has been raised from "normal" seasonal activity to "moderate". We are also keen to hear from patients. "This is not just about flu".

"We have seen in recent days an increase in the number of people presenting at Accident and Emergency from flu".

The HPS report said: "Vaccination of those eligible for seasonal influenza remains the most important preventative measure to reduce influenza".

She said: "It will take some time for services to recover from the pressures being felt this winter and for the spikes in flu levels to subside".

"In spite of all that thanks to winter planning, thanks to the efforts of our NHS staff, our NHS is coping admirably".

He said he was "so fed up of the lies" and claims the NHS is fine that he wanted to go public with his dad's story, adding: "I am lucky it was just the flu and cuts and bruises, as if it was anything else he could have died waiting that long on an ambulance".

More than 5,000 people were forced to wait more than an hour to be seen in emergency departments in England in the first week of the year, while more than 16,600 people had to wait more than half an hour, the NHS England statistics show.

And BMA Scotland, which represents the country's doctors, warned that the current situation should not be dismissed as "the inevitable increase in pressure that winter brings".

Ms Davidson said there were nearly 2,000 fewer hospital beds in Scotland than there were five years ago, when the total was more than 23,000.

'As a result, care in too many places has fallen below the standard we would all want, with knock on effects throughout the wider health and care system.

Of those attending the emergency department at the hospital in Larbert between Christmas and New Year, 141 people waited over eight hours and 35 waited more than 12 hours.

"So we have both the number of hospital beds falling in Scotland and the number of elderly social care places have fallen too".

But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the pressures on the hospitals were part of a wider problem as he pledged more funding if Labour wins power.

On New Year's Day, Mr Wilson waited three hours for an ambulance then 13 hours on a trolley for treatment.

"The Health Secretary and I will be more than happy to look into the specifics of Mr Wilson's case if Richard Leonard passes them to us". "Is this a joke?"

A spokesman for the Vic said the severity of cases seen last month meant people were spending longer on the ward, while the success of efforts to get patients with more minor conditions to seek treatment elsewhere - such as walk-in centres - meant a greater proportion of those seen at the hospital needed more intensive treatment, causing delays for other patients.

"As we know, every year and winter the National Health Service comes under additional pressure, and we've seen the extra pressures that the NHS has come under this year", she said.

"That is down to the fact that we are facing demand and increases in demand that are unprecedented".
