Who are BL Claims Solicitors

There were 17.6 million A&E visits in 2011-2012 which was up from 16.2 million in the previous year.  It appears that A&E see 4,000 cases every hour between 10 am and noon on Monday which is twice the average for the rest of the week.

Of the figures provided for total attendances, 10.3 million which is 58.4% were discharged for GP follow-up or no follow-up and 3.7 million (20.7%) of all attendances were admitted to hospital.

I expected Saturdays to be the busiest time in A&E when everyone was out playing rugby and football.
