Nursing chief's warning about hospital bed blocking

The director of the Royal College of Nursing in Wales has warned that patients are blocking hospital beds due to a lack of community nurses.

Tina Donnelly has called for more investment in out-of-hospital care to allow patients to stay at home.

If not, she warned the Welsh NHS would struggle to meet its financial targets in the long term.

The Welsh government said it was spending £30m in primary care over the next year, including more community nursing.
