‘Health Minister burying his head in the sand over deeply worrying critical care report’ – Kirsty Williams

A report into critical care in the Welsh NHS, from June, published today by the health minister states that:

  • Wales has the lowest critical care capacity in Europe

 

  • There is an immediate need for an additional 73 beds in Wales

 

  • The number of critical care beds in Wales has declined since 1999

 

  • Most Welsh critical care units routinely run at above the recommended 75 per cent bed occupancy rate
  • Demand for critical care is expected to rise by five per cent per year on average, although the demography of Wales means this might be higher for an ageing population with high rates of chronic illness.
