Poor state of Welsh health Letter in the Sunday Times 17th December 2019
Labour has announced it will outspend the Tories on the NHS and reduce waiting times. Here in Wales the NHS has been devolved to the Labour–led Welsh assembly since 1999. Waiting-time targets for most elective surgery are twice those in England (36 weeks as opposed to 18) and even then are often exceeded.
The Welsh NHS also performs considerably worse in A&E waiting times, with some health boards even allowing 12-hour waits.
