NHS: Crackdown on 'hidden waiting' ordered by ministers

"I am romantic about the NHS; I love it. All I need to do to rediscover the romance is to look at health care in my own country." Donald Berwick, MD, head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Ministers are ordering a crackdown on "hidden" waiting in the NHS in England.

Hospitals currently have to see non-urgent patients within 18 weeks but there are nearly 250,000 on lists who have waited for longer than this.

Ministers believe there is not enough incentive for these patients to be treated, meaning some are left "languishing" unnecessarily.
