ED waiting times at record lengths

introduced a of 95% of ED patients being seen within six hours. saw the proportion rise from 86% to 95% and then stay in the 93% to 94% range for some years.

came in and scrapped the target. Here’s what happened:

  • Sep 2018 89.1%
  • Sep 2019 84.8%
  • Sep 2020 86.6%
  • Sep 2021 80.2%
  • May 2022 74%

Note that it dropped well before the pandemic, and has continued to drop during it.
