I never thought I’d be the kind of person who takes their 10-month-old baby on a long-haul flight to a tropical island for an indulgent week away. My earliest family holidays were taken under canvas in crowded French campsites. But then I never thought that six months after my daughter’s birth I’d be sitting in a consulting room trying to explain through my tears that there was simply “too much in my head”. In the referral letter, my GP had written that I was “appropriately dressed”; I was wearing a pair of Gucci loafers. I remember looking at my shoes trying to recall being the same woman who less than a year earlier had walked confidently into fashion shows and filed reviews to be printed in this newspaper within an hour. I was now too terrified to leave the house or be left alone. One in 10 women will suffer with postnatal depression within a year of having their first child.

Updated Ambulances queuing at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital A&E department last year. Picture: ANTONY KELLY Archant Norfolk 2017 Nearly 400 patients waited more than an hour to be transferred from an ambulance into Norfolk hospitals in the space of just two weeks last month. The aim is for crews to be able to hand patients over to hospital staff within 15 minutes of arriving, to allow them to get back out on to the road to attend more calls.But if an emergency department is full or very busy, staff may not be able to accept the patient immediately, meaning crews need to stay with them in the meantime.It often leads to ambulances queuing outside A&E, which has the knock-on effect of causing longer waiting times for those who call 999.Between December 3 and December 30 last year, the majority of patients (75pc) were handed over within half an hour.However 14pc (560) of patients at the region’s busiest hospital, the Norfolk and Norwich University … [Read more...] about More than 700 patients wait more than an hour to get into emergency departments as winter pressures begin
