Abstract

The number of emergency admissions to hospital in the UK has been increasing for many years. The cause is multifactorial and relates to increasing population age and associated comorbidity, changes in community medical emergency cover, patient expectations and decreased clinical experience of junior medical staff. Beds occupied by emergency patients within a constrained total lead inevitably to cancellation of procedures for elective patients.
