WATCH: Heartbreaking. New figures obtained by us has found that since the SNP promised to eradicate delayed discharge almost 700 people have died in hospital while waiting for a care package. These are people who have been cleared to leave by a clinician but trapped in hospital, sometimes for weeks on end. This could be your mother, father, grandmother or grandfather. This is a scandal and a direct result of cuts to local councils and social care. Warm words are not enough, we need action now.
