NHS trusts fail on waiting times - Guardian
"Less than half of NHS patients are receiving hospital treatment within the government's flagship waiting-time target of 18 weeks, new figures revealed today.
Only 48% of patients in England are treated within 18 weeks and 12.4% have to wait more than a year for treatment, according to figures published by the Department of Health today.
The results cast doubt on whether the government can meet its promise that all patients would be treated within this time by the end of 2008.
Patients in south-east England suffered the longest waits for hospital treatment with only a third seen within the target time."
