Personally I wasn't fussed with the EBC's choice of graphic so I decided to see what I could do with the data instead

And since we are showing an increase right across the boards (see what I did there?) we should also add a call out showing exactly what the increase is as a percentage.
The further down the graph we go the more frightening the increases are. With Hywel Dda health board showing an increase of over 1700% for patients waiting 36 weeks or more for an appointment.
I think we've just found one of the sticks that Plaid Cymru will be using to beat Labour with ahead of May's election.
