NHS Confederation chief executive Niall Dickson answered questions this week on the effects of the Coronavirus on an already over stretched NHS.
Dickson told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that the NHS is “very used to dealing with emergencies and infectious diseases and will be able to cope with the coronavirus. “
Dickson went on to say the system is “under enormous pressure”.
With 90% of beds already full, even with contingency plans , the NHS will be hard pushed t cope.
