Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has applauded the announcement of £270 million to drive down waiting times for NHS patients across Scotland over the next three years. Of this year’s funding, NHS Grampian will receive £8.298 million to reduce the length of time patients need to wait between referral and treatment to a maximum of 18 weeks by 2011.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“The period between being referred for treatment and receiving that care can be an enormously stressful time for patients, and as such I am sure that this move to reduce waiting times will be welcomed by residents of Banff & Buchan.

“The SNP government are committed to bringing waiting times down to a maximum of 18 weeks, and I am delighted that we have put the money in place to achieve this over the next three years.

“I am confident that hardworking doctors, nurses and members of staff in NHS Grampian will be able to achieve the targeted reduction in waiting times thanks to the money that the Scottish Government is making available. We are committed to continually improving the NHS in Scotland and driving down waiting times for patients is a vital step for us to take”.
