Shortage of Hospital Beds in the UK
Right now, there is a crisis. There is a shortage of hospital beds in the UK, with an urgent solution desperately needed.
The UK has the least number of hospital beds per person out of practically every country in the West. This leaves the UK to be in a similar situation as India, Indonesia, and Mexico. Countries such as Germany and France have over twice as many hospital beds per person. The levels of overcrowding in NHS hospitals have gone beyond the safety limits.
