Up to 15 operations have been cancelled per week at Royal Bournemouth Hospital since autumn 2012, due to a shortage of beds.

Tony Spotswood, chief executive of Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals Trust, also said there was a “constant rise” in emergency patients.

He added more than 1,500 operations had been carried out per week.

A two-day meeting with GPs, directors of adults and social care and the trust has been planned for next month to find a long-term solution.
