One patient visited accident and emergency at the Northern General Hospital 223 times in one year.

National figures were released this week that showed 12,000 people made more than 10 visits to the same casualty unit in 2012-13. Just over 150 attended more than 50 times.

The statistics came at time when many hospitals face mounting pressures are struggling to hit their waiting time targets.
