The BBC have revealed that A&E waiting times in England have reached their highest levels ever.
The analysis also identified the worst A&E units for individual waits.
According to the report, hospitals are meant to see 95% of patients in four hours. This recent difficult winter has seen the NHS record its worst ever annual performance since records began in 2004, with 88.4%.
The worst single performing service was Princess Alexandra Hospital in Essex, which saw just 70.9% of patients in four hours during 2017-2018, followed by East Kent Hospitals on 74.3%.

Have you been affected by delays in A&E that have led to you suffering further?
At The Specter Partnership we understand that medical organisations will do everything they can to examine and treat a patient as soon as possible, but sometimes negligence can occur, leaving an individual’s condition to worsen.
If this is the case, then an individual is entitled to a fair compensation for A&E negligence.
