§ Mr. Win Griffiths
Latest available information to the end of September 1997 shows that 94 per cent. of patients at Accident & Emergency departments were assessed within 10 minutes of arrival; 95 per cent. of patients were admitted into the main hospital within 2 hours of the decision to admit; and 95 per cent. of patients received treatment within 4 hours.
Further improvements to this performance will be considered during the development of a new NHS Charter for Wales which is currently the subject of consultation in the NHS in Wales.
