Commenting on new weekly A&E statistics showing performance against the 4-hour waiting time target remains below 90%, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:

"Far too many patients are still not being seen in time.

"One week the Scottish Government blame snow and ice, the next a flu outbreak. While these did pose particular challenges, the fact of the matter is that week in week out performance against the A&E target is down on the year before.

"NHS staff are working incredibly hard but they're being let down by a Scottish Government which is failing to give them the resources they need to get on with the job."
