A&E crisis plans 'not good enough', say MPs

The plans put in place to relieve the pressure on A&E units in England are not good enough, MPs say.

The Health Select Committee said it had been given "confusing" and "contradictory" information about what was being done.

It prompted the cross-party group to question how prepared the NHS would be for next winter.

The report comes after the NHS missed its four-hour waiting-time target in the first three months of this year.
