Diagnostic waiting times

Statement by Liz Moore, Director for Acute Services

NHS Ayrshire & Arran is committed to providing safe and effective diagnostic services and treatment for our patients in as timely a way as possible.

We are working hard to reduce these waiting times and we prioritise all diagnostic tests where the referral has indicated ‘urgent suspected cancer’ or ‘urgent’. These referrals are normally performed within two to three weeks of the referral.
