I’m able to compare the full December 2021 figures today.
During December 2021, NHS Scotland A&E services saw 75.7% within 4 hours.
In the same period, NHS England saw only 61.2%*.
That’s a crude 14.5% difference but, in effect, NHS Scotland is 23.7% faster. That means hundreds seen on time in Scotland and thousands not seen on time in England. Why has Labour nothing to say?
The PM’s local Hillingdon Trust managed only 54.1%.
- The NHS England data are almost certainly even worse as they restart the count after a patient is admitted. In Scotland, the count begins on arrival and is no restarted.
