Powys patients face longer treatment wait in England


Patients from Powys may have to wait longer for operations in English hospitals under plans to save money.

Many patients need treatment across the border because the county does not have a large hospital.

But they could have to wait at least 32 weeks under plans by Powys Teaching Health Board to save £2m this financial year.

According to Welsh government targets, only 5% of patients should spend more than 26 weeks on a waiting list.
