More patients die waiting


More bed blockers are dying in hospital, Age Scotland research reveals.

Fifty nine patients in Ayrshire and Arran died while waiting to be discharged last year.

That was a large proportion of the 474 people across Scotland, up 20 per cent on the year before.

Greater Glasgow and Clyde only had 69.

Age Scotland chief Brian Sloan said: “It’s tragic.”
