Patients 'treated in corridors', claims Royal College of Nursing

Patients are being left stranded on trolleys for hours and forced to have treatment in corridors due in part to the loss of hospital beds, nurses say.

The Royal College of Nursing says feedback from more than 1,200 staff paints a "worrying picture", with patients regularly being in ambulances or held in a queue.

Vaughan Roderick, of Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement programme, asked RCN Wales director Tina Donnelly if there was any difference in the situation in Wales compared to England.
