A Week in A&E: Condition Critical?

Vivian White spends a week in a hospital in Stockton, hearing from doctors and nurses about the relentless pressure of working to strict government waiting time targets.

'Anything and Everything' is what doctors who work in A&E say the initials really stand for - where the violent, the drink and drug abusers, the lonely, the frail, the elderly plus those who really shouldn't be there in the first place, are all in a day's work. Panorama reporter Vivian White spends a week in University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton, hearing from doctors and nurses about the relentless pressure of working to strict government waiting time targets, and meets those who have had enough and have quit this most demanding part of the NHS.
