Waiting Times

Volume 455: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will take steps to inform patients of the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust whose waiting times have been extended by the manipulation of waiting time figures of the options for redress available to them. (109716)

It is for the local primary care trust (PCT) and the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust to ensure that adequate systems for redress are available to patients disadvantaged by the recent waiting list problems at the trust.

All patients formerly on the suspended list have now either been appropriately removed from the list, treated, or given a date to come in for treatment, and the expectation is that all patients will have been seen by the beginning of March.
