In Northern Ireland, the Belfast Telegraph has highlighted how the A&E unit at Antrim Hospital is ‘at breaking point’. The unit has come under strain since the closure of the casualty departments at Mid Ulster and Whiteabbey hospitals just over 12 months ago. A ward at the Mid Ulster Hospital has also now been closed as plans to centralise services at Antrim Area Hospital continue. No additional beds are being implemented at Antrim, with the trust planning for more patients to be treated in the community.
