Healthcare waiting times: improvement plan

Focuses on reducing the length of time people are waiting for key areas of healthcare.

Delivering the Improvement Plan

An oversight board is being established to drive delivery of the actions in this plan, and will ensure workforce and infrastructure resources are co-ordinated to maximum effect. Under the joint chair of Jill Young, Chief Executive of the National Waiting Times Centre, and Malcolm Wright, Chief Executive of NHS Tayside, the Board will report directly to the Scottish Government Director General for Health and Social Care. Through a robust performance management approach, it will closely monitor progress on the deliverables and impacts in terms of the Improvement Plan's stated ambitions.

We will regularly report our progress publically and the plan will be reviewed on a continuing basis, and refined to ensure that actions are assessed and new activity is brought on stream as required.
