The number of patients on NHS waiting lists has hit four million for the first time in more than a decade.
Waiting lists for routine treatments rose by more than half in seven years, from 2.6 million in 2011 to 4.1 million in September.
More than 3,000 patients have been waiting longer than a year for treatment, according to the Labour Party analysis reported by the Daily Mail.
Patients waiting at least six months have also risen by 70,000 in the last year alone. The NHS has failed to hit the 92% 18-week target for patients to be referred for consultant care since February 2016.
The Department of Health and Social Care said the NHS carried out 2.1 million more operations and saw more than 11.5 million more outpatients in the last 12 months compared to 2009-10.
The spokesman added that more than a million patients start treatment every month and nearly 15,000 fewer people are waiting over a year for non-urgent operations.
