As record numbers of people - more than half a million - wait for diagnosis and treatment, Health Minister Simon Harris has come up with 'five specific actions' to reduce hospital waiting lists.

Less than three months in office, the minister took to the airwaves yesterday morning to outline his five-point plan. Harris declined to set a target for overall reduction in the numbers waiting, but his first action is to halve the number of adults waiting more than 18 months for inpatient treatment by the end of the year.
