This must be about England, no?

Searching ‘A&E crisis’ for material to contrast with recent Scottish data, Google made this the second-best fit. Must have missed it at the time. Is the day after Boxing Day, Fibbing Day? At first, I thought it might just be another Herald story using English material until I saw the author, Scotland’s second-worst health correspondent. She does mean Scotland. She must know it’s rubbish. Here are the links to the facts again:

First, NHS Scotland’s A&E service is at least 20% better

NHS Scotland A&E at least 20% better than NHS England

Second, you are MORE THAN TWICE as likely to spend more than 12 hours waiting in A&E in NHS England than in NHS Scotland.

Third on ‘GP shortages’:

93% can see a GP in 2 days but Herald Health Correspondent lies for 4th time as election looms

The Herald vs BBC Scotland battle for ‘Mencken Sickness Correspondent 2019’ continues as GP numbers increase but only in Scotland

Scottish GP headcount climbs for 3rd quarter in a row, is younger and more numerous than in England.

Dear Boris, why are Scottish GPs NOT voting to reduce home visits?

Fourth on beds:

Jeanne Freeman demolishes Miles Briggs by revealing that NHS England is short of 25 times as many beds as NHS Scotland is

Reporting Scotland Up reveals Scotland’s hospitals cleanest in UK as Norovirus reports halve here but double there

I know where there is a crisis in Scotland. All together now: ‘IT’S IN JOURNALISM!’
