99.8% of IVF patients seen on time by NHS Scotland despite large increase in demand

From Public Health Scotland today:

During the quarter ending 31 March 2022:

  • 430 patients attended an IVF screening appointment, a substantial increase compared to the previous quarter (364 patients) and the average of all quarters of 2019 (367 patients).
  • the 90% standard was met and in fact, there have been no patients screened who waited over 52 weeks since the quarter ending 30 September 2020.
  • 99.8% of patients waited 39 weeks or less with half of the patients screened within 26 weeks, similar to the previous quarter.

Scotland’s IVF programme is major and long-running success, never seen on Reporting Scotland, and with a wider contribution to the mental health of thousands of women in Scotland.

  1. “Scotland’s IVF programme is major and long-running success, never seen on Reporting Scotland”
    Much as with all successes in Scotland’s NHS, it gets ignored because it is not politically convenient for the BBC or Opposition Parties in Scotland, or the Scotland Office. It a purely political position, were Labour back in power, there would be an instant transformation from perpetual black gloom to full colour Disneyesque celebration.
