From NHS Scotland yesterday:

The 31-day standard states that 95% of all patients will wait no more than 31 days from decision to treat to first cancer treatment.

96.5 % of patients started treatment within the 31-day standard, compared with 95.8% in the previous quarter and 94.9% for quarter ending December 2018.

The 31-day standard was met by 13 NHS Boards and Golden Jubilee National Hospital. The Board that did not meet the standard was NHS Grampian (92.8%).
