The Department of Health has defended its A&E funding but said it will outline on Tuesday its plans to ensure departments can cope with "additional pressures" this winter.
A statement from the department said the NHS "on the whole" was "performing well" but added: "We know A&E departments are under pressure."
We have given A&E departments an additional £500 million to make sure the best care is available for every patient this winter and the next and have set aside an additional £3.8 billion to help join up health and care services.
On Tuesday we will set out exactly how we will ensure services are equipped to deal with additional pressures this year and outlining longer-term changes for the future.
