95% Of Scottish Cancer Patients Treated Within 31 Days

In Scotland, the 95% target for waiting times of 31 days or less, between decision to treat and first treatment, was met in June 2018, having been met or only just missed for the last six years . Four out of fifteen boards did not meet the target. In 2017, the average was 94.8%. The 62-day wait between first suspicion of cancer to first treatment was, however, only met in 84.6% of cases. In NHS England, the figure was only 78.2%.
