No, I don’t tire of this topic.

In March 2020 NHS England’s Type 1 A&E departments saw 76.% of patients within 4 hours up from 73% in February.

The March average for NHS Scotland has not yet been published but it is easily worked out from the four weekly reports, at 83.8, 87.1, 92.2 and 92.7%. The average was 88.95%

Thus, the Scottish service was 17.03% better.

Reporting Scotland, of course, saw this as a massive failure as far fewer people were turning up yet they could not hit the 95% target.

BBC 1 News did not, of course, mention any of this. They’ve given up.
