I know lots of otherwise intelligent folk can be a bit blindsided by graphs but the above appears to be complete Scheiße.
Let’s just take one they want us to be shocked by – nearly 2 000 waiting more than 8 hours in April 2021.
I was shocked too but:
During April 2021, 1,181 (1.1%) patients spent more than 8 hours in an A&E department.https://www.publichealthscotland.scot/publications/ae-activity-and-waiting-times/ae-activity-and-waiting-times-month-ending-30-april-2021/
Even by May 2021, it’s still less than 2 000, at 1 782.
