First Minister (of Wales) likened to ‘Nero fiddling as Rome burned’ as new NHS performance stats are published

Today, we can read:

Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister Russell George MS has described the latest NHS Wales performance statistics as “devastating” and likened the First Minister to “Nero fiddling as Rome burned”.

The data released today confirmed that in April the NHS experienced its third worst-ever month for A&E waiting times and ambulance waiting times, while NHS treatment lists increased for the 23rd month in a row.

BBC Wales, above, have ignored a damning statement about NHS Wales, from a Conservative leader. Imagine BBC Scotland with that material.

For years now BBC Wales have protected the Welsh Labour Government as assiduously as BBC Scotland have given opposition parties a platform to headline problems in Scotland’s far more successful NHS.
