Ministers recognized key NHS commits ensure what all who waited at least two years for hospital treatment will be last there was no month met.

then health secretary Sajid Javid made Promise in February at the launch of the “elective recovery plan”. It was intended to solve what is now record 6.6 million-patient backlog in England for those awaiting a procedure, such as a joint replacement or cataract removal, and included series of stages of treatment that the health service should have hit.

“Not one by July will wait more than two years,” Javid said. However, the department of Health and Social Care has now acknowledged that it will not achieve this goal and that ” small amount of patients will be left without treatment by this time.

Health minister Maria Caulfield spoke to Wes Streeting about shadow health secretary, in written parliamentary response on July 18 that, although “no official assessment has been made … engagement with The National Health Service offers small amount of Patients with complex cases will wait longer than two years for NHS treatment to end of July 2022”.

Streeting said the reception was another example of in government do not support up rhetoric on National Health Service with specific action. “This is unacceptable for anyone to be left waiting more how one year for healthcare, not to mention two,” he said. “Once again conservatives promised too much [and] not delivered and patients pay price”.

Hospitals prioritize treatment in recent months of people forced to wait at least two years and reduced number of Patients in this position out of 18,600 when Javid made bail, up to several thousand.

Saffron Corderi, Interim Executive Director of hospitals group NHS providers stating specific challenges of condition of some patients and availability of teams of medical professionals meant that the July target was likely to be missed.

Javid promised that result of elective recovery plan, not just two-year the waiters were dismantled with by July, but also that all those who waited 18 months treated by April 2023 and everything is waiting of at least year eliminated by March 2025

Nonetheless director of Optional NHS England recovery program, Rob Stone, hinted during the meeting with local health leaders last month that a deposit covering those who wait 18 months can also also skip.

Number of Patients who survived the 18-month wait dropped from more than 120,000 last September to 57,000 in May, according to latest data available.

In comments published in the Health Service Journal, Stone warned that more than 1 million people – a huge cohort of patients” – who waited at least year who if not treated soon”would have moved” into the 78 weeks waiting category by quickly sending this total up.
