To ask the Scottish Executive what steps it is taking to ensure that the national scoliosis service meets the waiting time standard of 12 weeks for inpatient and day-care treatment.
I refer the member to the answer to question S3W-28088 on 5 November 2009. All answers to written parliamentary questions are available on the Parliament’s website, the search facility for which can be found at: http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/Apps2/Business/PQA/Default.aspx
The Scottish Government is aware that patients are experiencing delays in accessing the scoliosis service. A review of the scoliosis service is currently being undertaken to address service issues. The review is due to be completed by February 2011.
