"There were 137 879 attendance at A&E services in Scotland in December 2018. 89.6% were admitted, transferred or discharged within 4 hours. That’s an improvement on the 85.1% seen in December 2017 of almost 5%. https://www.isdscotland.org/Health-Topics/Emergency-Care/Publications/2019-02-05/Summary/index.asp The December 2018 figure is not yet available but the November 2018 figure for NHS England was only 79.3% seen in 4 hours. We can be fairly sure that the December 2018 figure, deeper into winter, will be worse. So, NHS England A&E is operating at best ten percentage points behind that of NHS Scotland. https://www.england.nhs.uk/statistics/statistical-work-areas/ae-waiting-times-and-activity/ae-attendances-and-emergency-admissions-2018-19/"
