From the Stand-in
Behind the ball here, once more, the Herald offers us the October A&E waiting time data, for Scotland, of 73.5% seen in 4 hours, only 18% better than NHS England at 61.9%
After two weeks when the figure fell to around 70%, in October, the figures have climbed in November against the usual winter trend.
The average for November is 74%, so far. A local bookie puts NHS England at 10/1 against staying above 60% when they release their November data.
