Scheduled procedures

Statement by Liz Moore, Director for Acute Services

Like most Health Boards in Scotland, NHS Ayrshire & Arran saw a reduction in the number of scheduled operations from January to July this year (2017) compared to the same period last year.

We continue to respond to a high demand for services and are committed to providing safe and appropriate care in a timely manner. Every effort is made to ensure cancellations are kept to a minimum - all cancellations are reviewed on a weekly basis and action taken where appropriate to reduce the number of cancellations on scheduled operating lists.
