England sees ‘worst summer on record’ for A&E waits

10 October 2019 – BBC News

Analysis by BBC Newsnight and the Nuffield Trust has found that an average of 86% of patients were admitted, transferred or discharged from A&E within four hours in the six months to September.

This is the worst performance in that period since the 95% target was brought in in 2004.
NHS England said it had been “the busiest ever summer” for A&Es.
