Hospitals are designed to treat patients who need non-urgent care within 18 weeks – but 13.3 percent, about 570 000, are waiting longer.

This is the worst performance in the near decade when this value was 14.5 percent.

Reception in emergency cases reached a record level last month at 542,435, an increase of 5.7 percent per year.

Tom Sandford, of the Royal College of Nursing, said: "Everywhere you see how you see our health care system."

Rob Harvood, of the British Medical Association, said: "We no longer experience the winter crisis in the NHS, it is now a crisis all year round.

"These numbers need to ring the alert alarm for the NHS and the government as we approach the winter."

NHS England said: "The NHS continues to look after the growing number of people who need our care."
