Welsh NHS waiting times at its worst in 2 years
A report in the BBC last week has discovered that waiting times for hospital treatment for longer than nine months in Wales have reached its highest level in two years.
Over 13,000 people in November, an increase of 8,000 since March 2013, were waiting for longer than nine months. The Welsh governments target is to treat all patients within that timeframe.
Health Minister Mark Drakeford told the BBC that the Welsh NHS has been under pressure but that it is not “in crisis”. He went on to say in the report that “there are fewer people waiting overall in the Welsh NHS than before”.
