DHSC waiting times published

Figures show delays in speciality areas

Waiting times for hospital appointments have been published by the Department of Health and Social Care.

As part of its commitment to deliver the five-year strategy, the DHSC has looked into the NHS provision to establish measurable Manx targets.

It'll be updating the figures four times a year - this quarter shows an improvement in areas like ENT, but longer hold-ups in other speciality areas.

Health Minister Kate Beecroft says people waiting for inpatient and outpatient appointments should know how long they'll have to wait.

Mrs Beecroft adds experiences can vary - dependent on the level of urgency.
