A&E warning: Doctors and nurses 'massively overworked'
Staff on accident and emergency wards are "massively overworked" and face "intolerable pressures" according a leading doctor.
Dr Taj Hassan, from the College of Emergency Medicine says not only does this "compromise patient safety" but has led to a "workforce crisis in emergency departments".
He was speaking in response to claims that the A&E system could collapse unless urgent changes are made to the way units are run.
