NHS Wales waiting times more than double in six months

The number of patients waiting more than nine months for hospital treatment in Wales has more than doubled in six months, figures show.

The number of patients waiting jumped from 5,414 to 11,672, in the six months since March this year.

The Welsh government wants 95% of patients treated within 26 weeks, but only 88.4% were seen within that time.
