NHS England have not released A&E performance figures now since their monthly return for November 2019. NHS Scotland release weekly figures and in the week ending 29 December 2019, they treated an astonishing 85% within 4 hours. Even NHS England’s faked figures based on the inclusion of their small ‘Elastoplast’ units which typically return near to 100% data, only claimed 81.4% for November. In reality, their Type 1 departments only manged 71.3% at the end of a steady fall from a summer ‘high’ of 78.9%.



They must at some time release the data for December and the trend suggests that they may be working hard to find ways to cover-up their first ever fall below 70% treated within 4 hours.
