Health regulator: A&E waiting times getting longer

Waiting times are getting longer at NHS accident and emergency departments in England, according to a survey of patients by the health regulator.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) survey showed 33% of people spent more than four hours in A&E - up from 27% in 2008.

Government targets say no more than 5% of patients should breach the four-hour limit.
