Full story in Essex Live 11 January 2018

December saw Harlow’s Princess Alexandra Hospital record the worst waiting times of any Accident and Emergency in the entirety of England.

Just under a third of people who attended the hospital’s A&E department had to wait more than four hours in December before being dealt with.

This is an improvement on the same period in 2016 when just over a third of patients were not seen within the target time in A&E.

Only 67.3 per cent of the patients who attended A&E at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in December were admitted, discharged, or transferred within four hours.
