Reader complains to BBC on misreporting of A&E figures

From stewartb: In response to: ‘Boris Johnson’s abundant failure in government as his NHS England A&E waiting time figures for December plummet to new depths below 70%!’, yesterday: I too have no problem with your persistence on this topic.

SHOCK as BBC Scotland DO NOT tell you that rich Canada is 50 times worse at meeting A&E waiting times!

Journalism is all about choices. BBC Scotland have a charter requiring them to to inform. For you to be informed fully, requires that they make choices to provide accuracy and context. Today, under the headline: Record numbers wait more than 12 hours in Scottish A&Es, we heard how many people had waited for more thanContinue reading “SHOCK as BBC Scotland DO NOT tell you that rich Canada is 50 times worse at meeting A&E waiting times!”
