Nurse tells hospital patients they face 7 hour wait due to strain on NHS

Gary Sitton, who was with his son-in-law at the Princess Alexander Hospital in Harlow, Essex, on Monday night, said a nurse was verbally abused after explaining that there were 90 patients waiting to be seen, with a waiting time of 7 hours 30 mins.

The video has emerged as the NHS continues to come under huge pressure, resulting in delays in A&E departments.
