From Public Health Scotland today:
The 31-day standard states that 95% of all patients should wait no more than 31 days from decision to treat to first cancer treatment.
6,757 eligible patients were referred within the 31-day standard, an increase of 4.7% from the previous quarter, and an increase of 5.8% from the quarter ending 31 December 2019.
94.1% of patients started treatment within the 31-day standard, compared with 94.4% in the previous quarter, and 96.5% in the quarter ending 31 December 2019.
The 31-day standard was met by 9 of the 15 NHS Boards: NHS Ayrshire & Arran, NHS Borders, NHS Dumfries & Galloway, NHS Forth Valley, Golden Jubilee National Hospital, NHS Grampian, NHS Orkney, NHS Shetland and NHS Western Isles.https://www.publichealthscotland.scot/publications/cancer-waiting-times/cancer-waiting-times-1-october-to-31-december-2022/

OK both right but bbc quoting worst result. You’re quoting best one.
I’m balancing their one-sided negativity, always?
