Is the NHS overcrowded? Silly question! [Image: BSIP/UIG via Getty Images.]

Emergency departments are overcrowded with care being delivered in corridors because there are no cubicles, and patients are waiting unacceptable lengths on trolleys as there are no beds available within hospitals.

Indeed, the situation is incredibly frustrating as we are left to face the day-to-day reality of inadequate funding and resources.

Staff become ill, stressed and eventually burn out.
