Press release: scrapping of four-hour target must not be a response to continual failure of the Government to meet targets as waiting times spiral says DAUK

Dr Samantha Batt-Rawden DAUK President reacts to NHS England consultation on 4 hour A&E target, "Doctors have repeatedly told us of dire working conditions on the frontline. NHS staff are working themselves into the ground to keep patients safe during the worst winter on record. We must ensure that this move is not an attempt to deflect accountability for spiralling wait times in Emergency Departments as a result of years of under-resourcing.”
