Scotland’s biggest hospital sets up pavement triage to test if patients are sick enough for A&E

21 May 2020 – Daily Record

Seriously ill patients turning up at A&E in Scotland are being stopped and checked outside to see if they are sick enough to get in.

The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow has set up a pavement triage where nurses in PPE stand behind a barrier to assess people in queue.  Unfortunately coronavirus restrictions mean they’re having to reveal personal details in front of other patients before either being allowed in or told to seek alternatives such as treatment from a GP.
