Northampton General Hospital: “Unprecedented demand.”

The blame lies with Jeremy Hunt, Theresa May, Andrew Lansley and David Cameron. Always remember that.

An elderly man died due to “dangerous overcrowding” at an accident and emergency department, an NHS trust’s medical director has said.

The 85-year-old suffered cardiac arrest while waiting to be treated for stomach pains at Northampton General Hospital on Wednesday afternoon.

In an email leaked to Health Service Journal (HSJ), the trust’s medical director Matthew Metcalfe said the patient died “due entirely to the dangerous overcrowding of the department”.
