The provision of services, including accident and emergency (A&E) services is a matter for the local National Health Service.
This Government has given the NHS a record £700 million this winter for more doctors, nurses and beds. The NHS, including in the West Midlands, has ensured there are plans in every area to manage the extra demand.
NHS England’s urgent and emergency care review is looking at ways to improve the system to ease pressures on A&E departments. In the long term we are supporting NHS England’s Five Year Forward View which will transform hospital care and reduce pressures on A&E services.
