When will Welsh Labour Government get a grip on our NHS?

November 15, 2013 9:00 AM

The drip, drip of bad news about the Welsh Health Service has continued yet again this week as statistics reveal that at the end of September, 11,672 people has been waiting more than 36 weeks to begin their treatment following a referral from their GP.

As reported by Wales Online the figures are an improvement upon the previous month, but still far from the target set by the Welsh Labour Government that nobody should be waiting that long.

The number of patients waiting more than 26 weeks for treatment meanwhile increased by nearly 2,400, and 36,696 waited between 26-36 weeks.

In England the target for commencement of treatment is only 18 weeks, and yet the Labour party have the nerve to criticise the coalition Government when their own Welsh Government is making such a hash of things.

When are they going to take any decisive action?
