London, 10 July 2014 - Recent research from Imperial College London suggests that almost six million patients a year are turning to A&E because they cannot get an appointment with their GP. At the same time, iPLATO Research published a report concluded that 180,000 people used the iPLATO system to cancel their appointment during the 2013/14 financial year.
“A&E is creaking at the seams. It’s not broken, but it’s struggling” said Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS Medical Director at the publication of the Urgent and Emergency Care Review in November 2013. Accidents & Emergency has become a hot political topic over the last years, often used as the ultimate measure for how the coalition runs the country’s health service.
