Pressures in England’s A&E units have hit record levels, with the lowest percentage of patients seen within four hours since monitoring began in 2010.

Data showed just under 90% of patients were seen within four hours in the seven days up to December 14.

And Princess Alexandra in Harlow really struggled as only 79% of patients were seen within four hours.

According to shadow health secretary, Andy Burnham, staff had told him that this has been the toughest week ever and it seems the stats bear this out.

The 111 campaigners have been working tirelessly to ask people to consider ringing the number first and to try as much as you can to avoid A and E.

According to the figures, 149 ambulances queued outside the PAH compared to the national average of 60.

However, no planned operations were cancelled compared to national average of 11.

Just under 2,000 people attended PAH A and E in that week.

How does PAH compare with other hospitals?

Darent Valley in Kent had 97% of patients seen within four hours.
North Middlesex: 90%
Basildon and Thurrock: 88.5%
Queens in Romford: 67.4%
Addenbrookes: 61%
