NHS Scotland A&E performance 11% better than NHS England

NHS England has been hiding its A&E performance away from easy scrutiny for some time, but the Nuffield Foundation has been able to extract it (above). Most news coverage fails to distinguish between Type 1 and Type 2 (‘minor’) A&E departments, in England. Only Type 1 A&E departments are comparable with those in Scotland. Only 77.2% of Type 1 A&E attendances were seen in 4 hours or less in Q3 of 2019 (red line).

In Scotland Q3 (October – December) performance was 88.1% seen in 4 hours or less, nearly 11% better than the NHS England performance.
