Hospital expects hundreds more ER patients this winter

Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, Kent, in the UK will have to treat 20 more patients a day in its "Accident and Emergency" department and 1,000 more women a year in its maternity ward after a neighboring hospital closes its facilities for the winter, the Dartford & Swanley Times reports. Queen Mary hospital will close departments temporarily in November due to staff shortages. Article
