NHS Confederation Public Elective Care Poll

A survey of British adults aged 18+ on the NHS elective care target

The consensus among almost three quarters of British adults (72%) is that new money from government for the NHS should be put towards meeting the 18-week target for elective care. A large majority (69%) also agree this target should be maintained, even when the NHS is under financial pressure.
