Wales ambulance waits 'massive problem' - Roy Norris

Ambulances have spent almost 55,000 hours waiting outside Welsh hospitals in six months, according to figures obtained by BBC Wales.

The ambulance service said there has been a "high increase" in delays in admitting patients due to significant pressure on the NHS.

Roy Norris, a member of the All Wales Ambulance Group and also a former chair of the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust, was asked by Felicity Evans on BBC Radio Wales' Good Morning Wales if queueing outside hospitals is still a massive problem.
