Graph of the week - how many major A&E depts meet the waiting time target?

The media continue to report on the NHS crisis in A & E with sad and worrying stories about what is happening in our hospitals.

This week's graph of the week is a simple pie chart that shows only 6 per cent of major A&E departments meet the government target of treating 95 per cent of A&E admissions within 4 hours.

It really is as bad as the media are reporting, and, as many NHS workers have been telling UNISON, the winter peak has not yet hit as we've not had a prolonged icy spell. The worst is mostly likely yet to come.
