In December 2018 only 600 or 2.4% of all operations were cancelled due to ‘Non-clinical/Capacity reasons.’ This was down from 3.4% in November 2018 and from 3.2% in December 2017. Remember a 1% drop is around a third of the previous 3.2% and 3.4% figures and means around 300 patients. Those cancelled for clinical reasons were also down slightly on the previous month while those cancelled by the patient were up.
NHS England does not collect the statistics in a comparable way.
Yup, these SNP governments. Tut, tut!
Not anywhere near as good at cancellations as the Brits, are they?
Ah, for the good ol’ days of Jeremy Hunt when southron hospitals were fu’ tae burstin’, and ambulances had to circle the building.
Pure wasted on Foreign Affairs, when he doesn’t know his Japans from his China, and thinks England is the country he represents!
Hopefully it will be soon!
