A&E hospitals reduce waiting time despite winter pressure
Accident and emergency departments in England saw 92.9% of patients within four hours last week - the lowest percentage since April 2013, NHS data shows.

A&E waits have been below that level since the end of September.
The Department of Health says it recently announced extra support for A&E teams.
