No available beds

A really sad article I came across on the Daily Mail website today about a mental health nurse who died partially as a result of her well concealed eating disorder. Prior to her death, professionals were looking to re-admit her into hospital, but couldn’t because there were no beds available.

Could a life have been saved if there were more inpatient facilities?
