Could 'corridor medicine' in emergency departments help with ambulance handover delays? Suzanne Mason, a professor in emergency medicine, believes so. In this episode she discusses the changes needed to treat an ailing urgent and emergency care system ahead of an NHS England review. She shares her view on NHS 111, demand management and how resources might be used to better effect.
