A&E wait­ing time tar­gets met

The Oban Times - - News -

THE MOST re­cent data for NHS Scot­land re­veals that 100 per cent of pa­tients in NHS West­ern Isles’ emer­gency de­part­ments were seen, ad­mit­ted or dis­charged within four hours – beat­ing the 95 per cent tar­get.

Scot­tish hos­pi­tals have now had the best per­form­ing emer­gency de­part­ments in the UK for more than two years.

Com­ment­ing, SNP MSP Alas­dair Al­lan for Na h- Eileanan an Iar said: ‘ Th­ese very pos­i­tive fig­ures for the West­ern Isles are a tes­ta­ment to the hard work of our NHS and so­cial care work­ers.

‘It is ex­tremely en­cour­ag­ing that emer­gency de­part­ments in NHS West­ern Isles are fre­quently meet­ing the four-hour wait­ing times tar­get.’
