From Public Health Scotland today:

72.1% of attendances at A&E services were seen and resulted in a subsequent admission, transfer or discharge within 4 hours.

The NHS England data for April are not out yet but in March 2022:

NHS Scotland saw 71.6% in 4 hours.

NHS England only saw 58.7%.

NHS Scotland’s performance was thus 21.9% better (71.6 – 58.7 as a % of 58.7)

  1. Great news that Scotland’s A&E continues the upward trend well done to all NHS staff.

    I guess BBC Scotland will be all over this story and I look forward to their headline piece tonight as I unfortunately missed earlier it on GMS..

      An hour ago (allegedly) the Scotland webpage went with “Children’s mental health care referrals up by 22% in Scotland” with “Analysis by Laura Foster” owing to Linda Wintery losing the spring in her step in the autumn of her years…
      Walkers passers-by Pacific Quay reported hearing buddhist chants emanating from the bowels of the building but nobody recognised the mantra “Awwwwww shitttt…”
