We remain under pressure across our sites, with the RLI in particular facing a very challenging day yesterday. Furness General Hospital remains fragile, but has de-escalated to Opel 3 this afternoon as we are able to assure patient safety. RLI remains on Opel 4 and will be reviewed over the next 24 hours.
On behalf of our patients, their friends and carers, we send our continuing thanks and gratitude to staff who are working so professionally in difficult circumstances.
We would also like to thank the public for their patience and understanding when attending our Emergency Departments.
