Only 31.8% in 4 hours? In Europe? No...
From Public Health Scotland today, for September 2022:
69% of attendances at A&E services were seen and resulted in a subsequent admission, transfer or discharge within 4 hours.
For the same month in England, the figure was 56.9%.
NHS Scotland has thus performed 21.3% better.
Remember, it’s not just 21.3%. That means thousands more seen within 4 hours in Scotland than if they’d been treated in England and hundreds of thousands more waiting more than 4 hours in England than if they’d been treated in Scotland.
In Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, a staggering only 31.8% were seen in 4 hours. The areas has 3 Labour and 1 Con MP (IDS).
Scotland’s worst performing board, Lanarkshire, saw 56.7% in 4 hours.
