Locker, T.E. and Mason, S.M. (2005) Analysis of the distribution of time that patients spend in emergency departments. BMJ, 330 (7501). pp. 1188-1189. ISSN 0959-8146
The NHS Plan stated: "By 2004 no one should be waiting more than four hours in Accident and Emergency from arrival to admission, transfer or discharge." This target was changed to allow for certain clinical exceptions, and since January 2005, 98% of patients must spend less than four hours there. We analysed the distribution of time spent by patients in emergency departments in England.
