The number of people waiting for NHS treatment has reached three million for the first time in six years, amid warnings that
the growing demand for care means it could potentially start routinely missing key targets, the Guardian reports.
The most recent figures from NHS England show that in April a total of 2,993,108 patients were on the waiting list for
treatment, supposedly within 18 weeks. However, the real total was more than three million because six hospital trusts
failed to submit data due to computer problems.
