“A Staffordshire hospital has suspended its A&E service for children after senior staff said it was “not currently clinically safe”. The drastic measure came after County hospital in Stafford was found to have insufficient staff trained to the required level in resuscitation and life-support for children. University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS trust advised parents not to bring their children to the hospital, and instead to take them to a GP or pharmacist in the case of minor illness or injury, or to call 999 in the event of an emergency.”
