The total number of people waiting for a first outpatient appointment at the end of December was 124,589. This represented a decrease of 4,246 on the number waiting at the end of September 2010 and an increase of 42,019 on the number waiting at the same time last year.

2. If they would have been affected, now are exempted by Ms. Sebilius
Oh, the irony.
