Coronavirus frontline: hospital staff “overwhelmed” by “onslaught of admissions” – BBC News

Hospital staff have described how they feel overwhelmed by the number of coronavirus patients they are treating, as they work under enormous pressure to save lives.

They speak of the fear that they may burn out as they face an unprecedented wave of critically-ill patients.

The challenges at the NHS frontline are recorded in a special report for BBC News at Ten, from the University Hospital in Wishaw, part of NHS Lanarkshire.

Huw Edwards presents coverage inside the hospital by Special Correspondent Ed Thomas, producer Noel Titheradge and cameraman Phil Edwards.
