In the Independent today:
A&E waits are now “apocalyptic” and “worse than ever imagined” leaked NHS data shows, and could be driving 1,000 patient deaths a month, The Independent can reveal. Almost 700,000 people have waited more than 12 hours in A&E in the first seven months of 2022, according to leaked NHS data.https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/a-e-hosptial-trolley-waits-patient-deaths-b2135801.html
Unlike Public Health England, Public Health Scotland openly publishes data on waits of more than 12 hours.
From January to July 2022, there were 24 145.*
All things being equal, with 10 times the population, NHS England should have had around 250 000 waits of more than 12 hours but it had almost 700 000, approaching 3 times as many.
*Not having the data for week-ending 31 July 2022, I’ve added the weekly average for July to the figure.
