Grimsby & Scunthorpe hospital trust apologizes for 30,000 patient backlog

Over 30,000 patients were left waiting for treatment at the trust in charge of Scunthorpe and Grimsby hospitals last month.

Managers have apologised for delays. It's partly because they don't have enough staff to cope with demand.. 

They're trying to tackle the backlog by 'outsourcing' some work to other NHS and private trusts and putting on extra clinics.
