Surgeons call for the next Prime Minister to address lengthening waiting times, starting by fixing ‘ludicrous’ pension situationThe Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS) has today called for the two candidates in the running to be the next Prime Minister of the UK, to act fast to stem rising NHS waiting times. The call comes as NHS performance data is published showing that 4.39 million patients were waiting for hospital treatment, and a record 245,079 were waiting more than half a year (26 weeks).
