Hospitals across England are facing staff shortages in A&E departments, with the most acute shortages in London.
A health trust in east London said nearly half its posts for doctors and nurses were unfilled because "it's so difficult to attract permanent staff".
Dorothy Hosein from Barking, Dagenham & Redbridge NHS Trust said it struggled with full-time posts.
Mike Farrar from the NHS Confederation said trusts had to plan now for the increase in demand on services in the winter.
