An influx of Covid-19 patients is being seen in hospitals, leading to cancelled operations.
Staff are having to self-isolate for ten days, leading to shortages with Leeds Teaching Hospital having to cancel non-urgent operations in order to help cope with the numbers of patients coming in with Covid-19.
It has also been found that other hospitals and ambulance services are being affected as the third wave unfolds.
The Department for Health and Social Care has been approached for comment.
