Another disappointing report has emerged today that estimates half a million people in Wales are waiting for NHS treatment and it is unlikely that the backlog will be cleared within the next 5 years. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-56842562
Currently, there is also an increase in people waiting for diagnostic testing.
