Waiting Times

Volume 448: debated on Tuesday 11 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average waiting time was for functional electrical stimulation treatment in (a) England and (b) Dorset in the last year for which figures are available. (84122)

The official figures on waiting times show the length of time that people currently on the list for treatment have been waiting. The data are collected at consultant-led speciality level, for example neurology and clinical neuro-physiology. It is not possible to split this data down to show waiting list data for specific operations and treatments such as functional electrical stimulation.
