The Welsh Government says a 78.7 percent fall in the number of patients waiting for more than 12 hours in A&E departments is "a considerable achievement", which shows health boards are "moving in the right direction."
– Welsh Government spokesperson
Waiting times in A&E have improved for the fourth month in succession, with the percentage of patients being seen within four hours at its highest point this year.
Since April, the number of patients spending 12 hours or more in emergency care facilities has fallen by 78.7 per cent (from 2,268 to 483).
This is a considerable achievement and shows Health Boards moving in the right direction to tackle the challenges facing A&E.
