Just reported in the local rag, bulk of story will be in today's paper: Glos NHS Fcuked "Health bosses say military assistance may be required as the NHS in Gloucestershire reaches breaking point. The service is under huge pressure following a massive rise in hospital admissions and emergency calls. Great Western Ambulance Service took 1,000 calls a day at the weekend - a 36% increase on last year. Coun Andrew Gravells (C, Abbey), chairman of Gloucestershireâs Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee, added: âThis unprecedented demand is clearly having a major impact on the countyâs emergency services and this is a concern for us all. âStaff at the PCT, ambulance service and hospitals are working flat out to resolve the situation but if this is not enough then we should consider asking for help from other NHS organisations in the region and even the military.â *For the full story, please see today's editions of The Citizen and the Gloucestershire Echo. Discuss, should the military, overstreached to breaking point, be able to intervene, bearing in mind that the majority of TA med units use NHS staff, where would UK forces be able to find the available bods from the regulars???
