In Scotland, in March and April 2020, attendance at A&E departments fell by more than 20%. The number seen in 4 hours, as you might expect climbed to 89% in March and 95% in the first two weeks of April.

In England, attendance in March and April 2020 was slightly higher than in January and February. Type 1 A&E performance fell from 79.5% seen in 4 hours, in March 2020, to 77.1% in April.

It’s looking like Scottish A&E being at least 18% better in April 2020.

Footnote: Is the fall in A&E attendance in Scotland but not in England indicative of a stronger tendency to identify with the needs of the wider community rather than individual needs and rights?
