Heartlands Hospital A&E figures
One of the difficulties in looking at the stats for Heartlands hospital is that they include figures for Solihull, Heartlands and Good Hope.
I have obtained copies of the most recent statistics about A&E and put them in the window of my office.
What they demonstrate is that the primary concern relates to Good Hope. I had a number of conversations about this last week and the hospital is putting in some serious effort into resolving this.
Personally I have only experienced A&E at Heartlands and have not been to A&E at Solihull or Good Hope although I have visited patients at Solihull on a number of occasions.
It is important to have a good A&E service, but there are always challenges as to demand particularly with the complications now in the health service.
