Labour Health Minister confirms another year of 2-year NHS waits in Wales

Labour Health Minister confirms another year of 2-year NHS waits in Wales

The Labour Health Minister has written to the Welsh Conservatives to confirm that she doesn’t expect to virtually eliminate 2-year waits for treatment in our Welsh NHS until March of next year. In the rest of the UK, 2-year waits have been eliminated for some time.

Commenting, Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister, Russell George MS said:

“I am incredibly disappointed by the letter I received from Labour’s Health Minister yesterday confirming my fears that we will not see an end to inhuman 2-year waits this year. This is completely unacceptable given the fact that these waits have been virtually eliminated elsewhere in the UK.

“Without hard proof of tangible, actionable steps being brought forward by the Labour Government to bear down on these waiting times, how can the people of Wales have faith that it will be achieved? They missed their target in March and at this rate of reduction, Labour’s new target won’t even be reached.

“The Labour Government need to roll out surgical hubs and diagnostic centres far more rapidly, cancel their plans to recruit more costly politicians and instead replicate Rishi Sunak’s comprehensive workforce plan to bring more doctors and nurses into our Welsh NHS. Simply setting new targets is not enough.”
