Rishi Sunak defends NHS waiting list figures

Rishi Sunak has defended backlash from the latest NHS figures which show waiting lists have risen by 330,000 since he promised to cut them, insisting that the government's plan is working. "Whilst we haven't made as much progress as I would have liked, today's figures show we are making headway towards that goal. Over the last five months, there has been a reduction of around 200,000 in the overall waiting list which is positive and if it wasn't for industrial action, an extra 430,000 patients would have been treated," he added.

Dr Hilary Cass says children are being let down

A new report by paediatrician Dr Hilary Cass has found that there is "remarkably weak evidence" to support gender treatments for children. Dr Hilary Cass said poor mental health and social media have had a major impact on gender identity amongst young people. "We've got significant increases in poor mental health amongst young people, particularly amongst girls. Also there are more neurodiverse young people in this cohort," she added. The Cass Review, published on Wednesday by paediatrician Dr Hilary Cass, calls for gender services for young people to match the standards of other NHS care. Report by Kennedyl.
