Northern Ireland hospital A&E waiting times double in a year

The number of patients waiting over 12 hours at emergency departments in Northern Ireland has more than doubled in a year.

In England just over 92% of people were seen within four hours in October, compared to nearly 95% in Scotland and just under 84% in Wales.

But in Northern Ireland the figures for November say that just over 75% of patients were seen within the recommended time.

Hugh Pym reports.
