In the Herald:
HUMZA Yousaf has been accused of “gross negligence” after the number of patients waiting too long in Scotland’s A&E units rose again. The SNP Health Secretary was condemned after official figures showed more than 30 per cent of those attending casualty last week waited longer than the four hour target.https://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/20224688.snp-health-secretary-humza-yousaf-accused-gross-negilgence-e-waits-worsen/
Who accused Humza? Sandesh Gulhane! Isn’t that an East Lothian beach?
Anyhoo, Sandesh is a Tory so how is Tory England doing on A&E times?
