Cole-Hamilton: A&E waiting times rise once again

Commenting on new A&E statistics showing recent progress has reversed and performance against the 4-hour waiting time target has fallen back below 90%, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:

“It’s discouraging to see A&E waiting times rising once again, just when things were starting to improve.

“NHS staff are battling to keep on top of their workloads week in, week out and it is unsustainable. The Scottish Government must step up to support hardworking frontline NHS staff and ensure limited resources don’t stand in the way of them doing their job."
