About our NHS Crisis news

Get the latest news on the crisis faced by the UK's National Health Service, with breaking NHS news from the leading sources on the NHS.

NHS crisis is a term used to describe the situation of the National Health Service (NHS) in England, which is facing what health leaders say is the worst crisis in its history. The NHS is struggling with a severe shortage of staff, especially doctors and nurses, which is putting patients at serious risk of harm. The NHS is also under pressure from rising demand for its services, especially during the winter months, when there is an increase in cases of Covid-19, flu and other respiratory illnesses. The NHS crisis has been decades in the making, as a result of long-standing problems such as a squeeze on funding, an ageing population, and a lack of social care. The NHS crisis has led to long waiting times for patients, cancelled operations, overcrowded wards, and critical incidents declared by hospital trusts and ambulance services.
