Hospital care waiting list numbers increase

The proportion of people in Wales waiting longer than 26 weeks for hospital treatment has increased, figures show.

The Welsh government's target is for 95% of patients should receive treatment within that time after being referred by their GP.

In August just 86% were treated within that time, down from 87.2% in July.

The Welsh government said ministers want to see performance improving.
