NHS is in crisis says Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham

The NHS in England has missed its four-hour A&E waiting time target with performance dropping to its lowest level for a decade, figures show.

From October to December, 92.6% of patients were seen in four hours - below the 95% target.

The performance is the worst quarterly result since a target was introduced at the end of 2004.

Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham told the BBC: "When the health service can't function... that is a crisis."
