UK Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak has admitted that his government has failed on a pledge to cut NHS waiting lists in England.


The prime minister agreed that the government has not made enough progress, claiming that industrial action in the health service has had an impact, while insisting that a new approach to eradicate the incessant strikes will yield results


Meanwhile, Sunak admitted publicly that the government has failed to achieve the NHIS goal but noted that he has invested record amounts in the NHS with more doctors, more nurses, more scanners.


The comments come a month after the Prime minister stated that he expected to see measures designed to reduce waiting times to start taking effect in spring 2024.


Sunak made cutting NHS waiting lists one of five priorities set out in January 2023, along with measures on the economy and illegal immigration, arguing at the time that the NHS waiting lists will fall and people will get the care they need more quickly.
