Plan for quicker cancer diagnosis

24 March 2019 – Gov.Scot

The revised Endoscopy Action Plan, which is backed by a £6 million investment, details steps to ensure all new patients will be seen within six weeks for key endoscopic tests.

The most urgent patients – including those with suspected cancer – will be prioritised and seen between two to three weeks.

The plan, which covers a two-year period, will sit alongside the Scottish Government’s £850 million Waiting Times Improvement Plan which was launched last year.
