Hospital waiting times

NHS Lothian is committed to reducing waiting times and ensuring patients are seen as soon as possible. The time you will wait will depend on your condition and the service you have been referred to. For some specialties patients may have to wait for up to 12 weeks or more. Many patients will be seen sooner than this but unfortunately this is not possible in every case.

What are the waiting time guarantees?

The Scottish Government has different waiting time guarantees that should be met and these include:

• Your first appointment in outpatients

• Tests like endoscopy, CT scan and ultrasound

• Treatment - like an operation.

Most patients should start treatment within 18 weeks of being referred by their GP. For more information visit: https://www.nhsinform.scot/care-support-and-rights/health-rights/access/waiting-times
