From the NHS Scotland Information Services Division yesterday, for the quarter ending June 2019:
82.4% of patients started treatment within the 62-day period from referral to first treatment, up from 81.4% in the previous quarter. The figure for NHS England was 77.8%.
94.7% of patients started treatment within the 31-day from decision to treat to first cancer treatment compared with 94.9% in the previous quarter. The difference is not statistically significant, and the English figures are not directly comparable as they have a two-week target in addition to the other two. I’ll admit to being unsure how this affects any reading of those statistics.
