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.”
