It's a natural thing

When a government try's to keep a promise it could not keep something has to give ,

Thousands of people a year are having to wait outside accident and emergency departments because trusts will not let them in until they can treat them within four hours, in line with a Labour pledge.

ambulanceDM1802_468x241The complaints of people being forced to wait in the halls led to the new assurances, but no real changes were made so now people are waiting outside.

Figures obtained by the Liberal Democrats show that last year 43,576 patients waited longer than one hour before being let into emergency units.

This is a natural outcome when government makes a promise others are forced to keep. Remember that come November.
