In the Herald today:
More than 8,000 A&E patients were forced to wait over four hours to be seen last week, according to the latest figures. The statistics, published by Public Health Scotland statistics on Tuesday, revealed that 70.2 per cent of those who attended emergency departments in the week up to May 15 were seen in less than four hours. The Scottish Conservatives described the statistics as ‘atrocious’ while Labour said the Government risked ‘normalising chaos.’https://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/20161102.thousands-waiting-four-hours-seen-e/
There are no comparisons with the equivalent data for NHS England. NHS England doesn’t release weekly figures but the March monthly data is available.
In March 2022, NHS Scotland saw 71.6% in 4 hours.
NHS England only saw 58.7%.
NHS Scotland’s performance was thus 21.9% better (71.6 – 58.7 as a % of 58.7)
