A review of the number of hospital beds that are available for acute care.

"During this time pressures on our services led to an unusually large number of A and E breaches".

"And we must not simply dismiss this as the inevitable increase in pressure that winter brings".

"While we do not want any delay to patient treatment, ensuring that patients with flu are admitted to, and cared for in the right place must always come first - the clinical needs of our patients is paramount".

"We'd like to thank the public for their patience during this hard time and to our staff who have been going above and beyond coping in extreme circumstances".

They said this was because the NHS is so "chronically underfunded" and dangerously short-staffed.

"The NHS today has launched their national flu programme and I would encourage people to act on the advice that the NHS is giving and also encourage NHS staff who haven't had the flu vaccine yet to have that vaccine".

"We realise that this can cause extra stress and upset when patients are already very unwell".

The Royal College of Surgeons called December's A&E performance "disappointing".

The only exceptions to this are cancer operations and what the NHS called "time-critical procedures" where the surgery has to go ahead to avoid the patient's condition deteriorating further.

The figures show that bed occupancy levels have gone back up to 95%, but, more positively, delayed transfers of care - when a patient is ready to leave a hospital - were lower than at the same point in any of the past four years.
