A&E waiting time figures show Tories’ ‘dismal record’ on the NHS

by willforster on 14 November, 2019

The 95% waiting target has not been met since July 2015.  Only 83.6% of patients arriving at A&E across England were treated or admitted in four hours in October, the worst-ever performance since a target was introduced in 2004.

It is shameful that patients in Woking are being abandoned, be it waiting for hours for treatment in A&E or for months in pain for routine operations.

These figures reveal the Conservatives’ dismal record on the NHS.  For the past four years the Tories have utterly failed to invest properly in our health service, leaving local hospitals underfunded, overstretched and understaffed.

Their extreme Brexit would make a dismal situation worse by driving away the EU nurses the NHS desperately needs.

The Lib Dems will stop Brexit and build a brighter future.  We will invest an extra £35 billion in our NHS through a penny on Income Tax and develop a national recruitment strategy to ensure we never again suffer shortages of nurses, doctors and other health professionals.
