Monitoring how busy Princess Alexandra is

Politics / Sun 8th Jan 2017 at 09:01am

EVERY morning, a bleary-eyed YH reporter routinely checks a number of websites: BBC Travel, Essex Police, Essex Fire. From now on, we will also put in a question to the Princess Alexandra hospital.

When we ask them, what their alert status is, their reply (last week) has been in terms of Operational Pressures Escalation Levels.

Last week they were at OPEL 4, meaning that the hospital is “unable to deliver comprehensive care and has an increased potential for patient care and safety to be compromised”.

The grading system runs from OPEL 1 to OPEL 4.
