How is the NHS performing?

  • 54,000 additional A&E attendances compared to the same time last year

  • 14,200 more emergency hospital admissions compared to the same time last year

  • “Winter usually brings a dip in NHS performance, but key targets are now being missed all year round. This reflects the impossible task of continuing to meet rising demand for services and maintain standards of care within current funding constraints.”

    Richard Murray, Director of Policy
