He talks about the dire situation in hospital Intensive Care Units

“Our staff are still exhausted from the first pandemic. Intensive care Units are stretched beyond breaking. Nurses who are supposed to look after one patient are now looking after three patients. It’s harrowing, it’s breaking us. It’s already worse than it was in the first wave. … 

“We have been put in this position by the whole mismanagement of the pandemic . ..

“London’s Intensive Care Units are already full but we are not expecting any more nurses and medics. The Nightingale hospitals are empty – to staff them you would have to strip ITU staff from other hospitals.”
