NHS Ayrshire & Arran Outperforms Four Hour A& Target

Kenneth Gibson has praised hard-working NHS staff after hospitals in NHS Ayrshire & Arran outperformed the four hour A&E waiting time target.

More than 95% of patients across Scotland’s core accident and emergency departments were seen, admitted or discharged within four hours, according to the most recent figures.

Hospitals in Ayrshire & Arran performed above the national figure, with 97.2% of patients being seen within the four hour target.

Scottish hospitals have been the best performing emergency departments in the UK consistently now for more than two years. Commenting, Kenneth said: “The excellent performance of Ayrshire & Arran's emergency departments is testament to the hard work of our NHS and social care workers. “We have seen a steady reduction in average waiting times and it is enormously encouraging that these figures are above the four hour standard and even more encouraging that Ayrshire & Arran's A & E departments are doing better than the national average.

“The challenge now is to ensure that this target is maintained. “I’ve seen how committed NHS staff are to providing a vital service and we should all celebrate their success.”
