App launched in north Wales to find out length of A&E wait

People going to accident and emergency and minor injuries units at north Wales hospitals will be able to see how many others are waiting thanks to a new app.

'Live wait' is designed to relieve pressure on busy A&E departments and persuade people to use smaller health centres instead.

The app was developed with North Midlands NHS Trust, and gives current waiting times for non-urgent treatment, opening times, directions and contacts.
