A&E waiting times figures released today for both the month of February and the week ending 29 March, show that improvement is being made.
During the month of February, 86.2 per cent of patients were seen within four hours at core A&E sites across Scotland, a figure up from 85.4 percent in January 2015.
Figures for all sites – which includes minor injury units as well as 24 hour consultant led core sites – show that 87.9 per cent of patients were seen within four hours during February, up from 87.1 per cent in January.
During the week ending March 29, core A&E sites saw 91.3 per cent of people within four hours.
This is a five percentage point increase since weekly A&E performance figures were first published for the week ending February 22, despite attendances having increased by four per cent over the same period.
