UK Secretary of State for Health, Sajid Javed on SkyNews Trevor Phillips UK residents are reassured in an interview with the presenter: The number of people waiting for surgeries and other care on the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) waiting list this year is less than the 13 million it wrongly predicted in July.
According to Javid, the current waiting list includes “only” 5.9 million patients, which has been expanded from just 5.8 million in September to a hundred thousand new patients waiting within two months.
However, Javid added that the waiting list of six million will certainly be extended before the number of waiters starts declining again as care recovers.
At the time of the pandemic, between 7 and 8 million British patients were out of care because we were asked to do soThe minister added to the long waiting list.
Boris Johnson Her government has provided £5.9 billion in additional funding to support the UK’s healthcare system to get medical care in the island nation back on its feet. However, according to the minister, the expanded budget alone will not be able to solve the situation overnight, because even in the usually difficult winter period without the epidemic, health workers will again have to face the difficulties caused by Covid.
