To ask the Scottish Government whether all stomach or gastro patients presenting at A&E departments are included in A&E waiting times statistics.
Answered by: Shona Robison 6 February 2018
All patients making a new or unplanned return attendance at A&E departments are included in the A&E statistics, regardless of the condition they present with.
In terms of the average waiting time for patients with stomach or gastro concerns, this information is not centrally available.
