The national health service is continuing to make huge progress in providing faster access to hospital care. In May 2000, 282,397 patients were waiting more than six months for hospital operations. That has now been reduced to just below 50,000 patients. By the end of this year, there will be no patients waiting more than six months for in-patient treatment.
