A&E pressure still ongoing

Health bosses are once again urging people not to go to hospitals in Northamptonshire unless it`s a genuine emergency.

Figures show Kettering General Hospital saw its highest ever level of attendance at A and E last week with around 244 people a day passing through the doors.

Meanwhile, Northampton General witnessed nearly 3,000 patients visiting its casualty department between Christmas Day and last Sunday.

Some routine operations have been cancelled and extra beds have been made available at both KGH and NGH to try and help staff cope with the demand.
