    • 38 Trusts facing serious pressure
    • More beds closed due to Norovirus
    • Cancelled operations up 15%
    • 9 hospitals had no available beds on some days in February

    Analysis by the Liberal Democrats of the Weekly Situation Report for the week ending 5 February 2017 reveals that:

    • 38 trusts are facing major pressure that could lead to poorer care. The NHS themselves describe this as leaving organisations unable to deliver comprehensive care. There is increased potential for patient care and safety to be compromised.
    • Bed occupancy rates were 95% or 96% every day between 1st February and 5th February - significantly higher than the official 'safe' threshold of 85%.From the 1st-5th February 3,517 beds were closed due to Norovirus.
    • 21,249 operations were cancelled at the last minute for non-clinical reasons. This is 15% up on the previous year. 1551 of those cancellations still had not been treated within 28 days.
  • Theresa May refugee open letter
    Article: Feb 9, 2017

    Tim Farron writes to Theresa May to secure renewed commitment to taking 3000 unaccompanied child refugees

    Dear Theresa,

    Yesterday during your statement on the Informal European Council I asked you if you would guarantee that your Government would continue to take unaccompanied child refugees from Europe under the Dubs scheme (section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016). Your failure to give this reassurance in your response yesterday was concerning and I hope that in your response to this letter you can clarify the Government's position on the Dubs scheme.
