患者在急診室等待了84小時,"太可怕了" - 道格拉斯-羅斯

羅斯先生說,通過信息自由申請,不僅發現了等待84小時的病人的情況,還發現了其他79、64和53小時沒有得到治療的病人。

他解釋說。"在整個蘇格蘭,最近一周有近1萬人在事故和緊急部門等待的時間超過了目標的4小時。這超過了所有病人的三分之一--是有記錄以來最糟糕的。

"而且現在才是9月。我們知道,我們的NHS的壓力在冬季只會變得更糟,醫生們對前線發生的情況和政府的反應感到震驚。"

在談到病人84小時的等待時,她說。"這顯然是一個不可接受的情況,但也是一個特殊的情況,我當然非常願意調查有關這一問題的特殊情況。"

她補充說:"我一直非常清楚政府正在採取的行動,以支持那些在第一線的人;確保更快地獲得事故和急救--以及更普遍的醫療保健服務--以及提出更多的背景要點,因為這是給予人們信心的一部分,我們正在採取行動來解決這個問題。"

"聽聽工作人員的意見。BMA的Lailah Peel博士本周說,現在病人到A&E就診是因為在等待治療和掃描時出現了併發症。

他告訴英國廣播公司。"我們在9月11日的周末看到的這種表現水平是不能接受的,這些衛生局知道我期望立即得到改善。"


Mr Ross said a Freedom of Information request had found not only the case of the patient who waited 84 hours but others who were not treated for 79, 64 and 53 hours.

He explained: "Across Scotland, nearly 10,000 people in the latest week waited more than the target four hours at accident and emergency departments. That is over a third of all patients - the worst on record.

"And it's only September. We know the pressures on our NHS only get worse over the winter, and doctors are damning about what's happening on the front line and the government's response."

Referring to the 84-hour patient wait, she said: "That is clearly an unacceptable situation, but also an exceptional situation and I am certainly more than willing to look into the particular circumstances around that."

She added: "I have been very clear about the action the government is taking to support those on the front line; to ensure that there is much speedier access to accident and emergency - and to health care services more generally - and also to make the more contextual points because this is part of giving confidence to people that we are taking action to address this."

"Listen to the staff. Dr Lailah Peel from the BMA said this week that patients are now presenting at A&E because of complications developed while waiting for treatment and scans.

He told the BBC: "That level of performance that we saw over the weekend of 11 September was just not acceptable and those health boards know that I expect immediate improvement."
