Waiting times rising

23rd May 2011

The most recent NHS figures have shown that waiting times have increased, with 35,000 patients waiting more than 18 weeks to receive treatment.

A Department of Health spokesperson said: "Waiting times go up and they go down, but this data shows that waiting times remain broadly stable. On average, admitted patients waited 7.9 weeks for treatment in March 2011, compared to 8 weeks in March 2010. For outpatients it is just 3.7 weeks, compared to 3.8 weeks in 2010."
