Ambulances 'face long delays at A&E' - BBC figures reveal


Each winter, the NHS faces extra pressures. Hospitals become busier as cold weather, flu and other winter bugs lead to falls, chest infections or heart problems.

Accident and Emergency departments are the front door of the hospital and this year, the BBC will be tracking the data on winter pressures so you can find out how your nearest major A&E in England is coping week by week.

Are they meeting the target of seeing 95% of patients in four hours? How many beds are closed?

According to BBC figures, weekly attendance at Newham General Hospital A&E is 5,741. 93.6% of patients are seen within 4 hours (this is below the national target of 95%).
