The average wait for patients for a routine GP appointment is now more than two weeks and waiting times are rising in A&E and for operations.

Truthfullness 3 / 5

Fact checked by: fullfact


The claim about waiting times for seeing a GP is based on a magazine survey that doesn’t have credible enough data to use as a definitive statement.

Wait times for A&E are rising. Wait times for operations is not something that can be accurately measured as the available data includes waiting for prescriptions and counselling.

Do you agree this deserves 3 / 5 for truthfullness?
