Tom Gordon tells us:
Waiting time performances in Scotland’s A&E departments have deteriorated for a second week running after showing a brief improvement last month. The latest official figures showed more than a quarter of people attending casualty had to wait longer than the four-hour target for treatment.https://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/19924803.scottish-e-waiting-times-suffer-wholly-unacceptable-decline/
Who said ‘wholly unacceptable decline?’
The Scottish Tories, of course.
What is Gordon’s deteriorating performance, ‘for a second week running?‘
- WE 9 Jan 67.4%
- WE 16 Jan 74.9%
- WE 23 Jan 77.7%
- WE 30 Jan 75.6%
- WE 6 Feb 74.4%
Deteriorating, statistically insignificant variation or even improving?
Note, they improved for two weeks in a row from 9 to 23 January? Did Tom report that? Did the Scottish Tories praise that?
What about some context Tom? How good are Tories at this game?
In the latest data from NHS England, for December 2021, it seems they only managed a pathetic 61.2% in 4 hours and the PM’s local, in Hillingdon, only manged a shocking 54.1%!
