NEARLY 2,000 patients have had to wait more than the Government target of four hours for treatment in South Tyneside.

According to NHS targets, 95 per cent of patients to A&E should be seen by medical staff within four hours of arrival.

However, since last September South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust missed the target for a total of 14 weeks.
