Comment on Jeremy Hunt's speech on NHS waiting times

04 Aug 2014

“The intention to reduce the number of people waiting a long time for treatment is laudable, and we welcome the additional resource that has been promised.

It is essential, however, that clinical priority is paramount when considering which patients should be prioritised.

With pressures growing on the NHS, we must also continue to consider longer-term solutions to ensure all patients have timely access to necessary treatment for both planned and emergency care.”
