It has been reported by the BBC that due to higher demand over the festive period patients in Wales were asked not to attend A+E departments and not call an ambulance unless they have a life-threatening emergency.
Various Health boards around Wales reported increased demands and increasing pressures leading to longer delays in treatment.
Approximately 86,000 patients attended A+E in Wales in November. Only just under 75% were seen within 4 hours despite the target being 95%. For ambulance services, 61.4% of red calls arrived within 8 minutes missing the target of 65%.
