Times: 250 people die each week in the UK because of the ambulance crisis

The health crisis in the UK has led to more than 250 people dying each week due to queues for emergency room appointments. This was reported by The Times newspaper with reference to data from the Royal College of Emergency Medicine.

According to the publication, in 2023, about 14,000 people died as a result of more than 12-hour waits for appointments in emergency departments. At the same time, a total of about 1.5 million residents of the United Kingdom last year spent more than half a day in queues to receive emergency care.

Earlier, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak called the reduction of queues to see doctors one of the priorities of his government. According to him, the situation in the health care sector is hindered by doctors’ strikes.
