For cancer waiting times, in the period from 1 October to 31 December 2021:
There were 6,388 eligible referrals within the 31-day standard, an increase of 0.9% from the previous quarter, and 11.8% increase compared with quarter ending 31 December 2020.
97.1% of patients started treatment within the 31-day standard, compared to 97% in the previous quarter and 98.6% for quarter ending 31 December 2020.
The 31-day standard was met by all boards except NHS Grampian and NHS Highland.https://publichealthscotland.scot/publications/cancer-waiting-times/cancer-waiting-times-1-october-to-31-december-2021/
Radiologist staffing under the SNP. This from 2019, so needing updating:
One thought on “97.1% treated within target time due to major increase in radiologist staffing under SNP”
The Unionists will present this as: “200 cancer patients wait for MORE THAN A MONTH for treatment!
