The Welsh Conservatives say Welsh Government cuts to the NHS here are "putting unprecedented pressure on staff and constraining capacity".
Shadow Health Minister Darren Millar says the target for the number of patients waiting over four hours in A&E departments has not been met once since Carwyn Jones became First Minister nearly four years ago.

Waiting in a busy A&E department for over four hours causes unimaginable distress and discomfort to patients, especially the elderly, young children and other vulnerable people.
Labour’s cuts of over £800m in real terms over five years are putting unprecedented pressure on staff and constraining capacity.
Full A&E units can prevent ambulances from discharging patients so they’ll be queued up outside hospitals and prevented from responding to emergency calls.
The Welsh Government must provide extra cash to the Welsh NHS so fewer patients are forced to endure such unbearable waits for treatment.
