Cancelled operations reach a new high

16th April 2010

Latest figures show that cancelled operations have risen to an all time high in Scotland since it became a devolved nation, according to the Scottish Conservative Party.

New data showed a total of 15,913 operations were cancelled in 2008/09. Throughout the course of the previous year there were 14,442 cancellations. Lanarkshire NHS Board had the biggest number of cancelled operations over an 11-year period but many health boards, including Forth Valley, Grampian and Glasgow and Clyde, had fewer cancelled operations in 2008/09 compared with 1999-2000.
