According to the Herald today ‘28,203 patients having spent 52 weeks or more on an NHS list.


According to the Independent, on the 15th April ‘A total of 387,885 patients in England have been waiting 12 months or more for planned surgery and other routine treatments.’


England has 10 times the population so, all things being equal might have been expected to have had 282 030 waiting for a year or more but had 387 885, 105 885 more. That’s 37% more.
