Fabiani hails Hairmyres progress as A&E statistics improve for month of October

Linda 1East Kilbride MSP Linda Fabiani has today welcomed encouraging statistics from NHS Lanarkshire which shows Hairmyres Accident and Emergency continues to make improvements with their A&E performance.

Year on year statistics show vast improvements. For the month of October 2014, 82.1% of patients were seen and subsequently admitted, transferred or discharged within four hours. For October 2015, that figure was an encouraging 96.6%.

Commenting, Linda said:

“Our hard-working staff deserve all due credit for their efforts. They have worked extremely hard to ensure performance continues to remain substantially above the same period last year, and they deserve our thanks for all that they do. I have always insisted that individual weeks cannot be taken in isolation, and that we must look at the overall trend for a clearer picture.

“The SNP have committed to spending more than £12 billion on our NHS for the first time, with funding for day to day running of services up over 5.8% since 2010. This year the Scottish Government have put in place further measures to help our NHS cope with winter. Winter guidance for boards was issued two months earlier this year compared to previous years, and additional investment of £10.7 million will help ease pressure.

“The Scottish government has a clear vision for the future of our NHS and will do all it can to ensure Scotland continues to have an NHS that we can all be proud of.”
