Jan 5, 2023

Four of Northern Ireland’s five health trusts have started to cancel non-urgent operations in a bid to increase hospital bed capacity, according to BBC NI. The broadcaster reported the only trust which has not cancelled some operations as a result of the pressure is the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust. According to the report, the Western and Northern Health and Social Care Trusts said the operations which were cancelled included non-red flag endoscopy and surgical procedures, with some elective orthopaedic surgery cancelled in the Southern Health and Social Care Trust. BBC NI said the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust confirmed they had proactively already reduced the number of patients booked in for procedures. It comes amid increasing pressure in the health and social care system here with 708 people spending longer than 12 hours in emergency departments across Northern Ireland on Wednesday morning, according to figures which emerged.

The fatalities occurred between December 12 and the start of January, with four deaths currently being treated as serious adverse incidents, while the remaining four are being considered.
