S5W-14265: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 31 January 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-13509 by Aileen Campbell on 11 January 2018, how “draft quality performance indicators” will be assessed effectively, in light of reports that long-term staff shortages have led to lengthy waiting times in many areas, and whether it plans to increase support to recruit more staff in key areas to tackle waiting times and improve patient care for people with chronic pain.

Answered by: Aileen Campbell 20 February 2018

The draft Quality Performance Indicators are currently in development and the process is yet to be finalised in detail.

In regards to waiting times, I refer the member to the answer to question S5W-14263 on 20 February 2018. All answers to written parliamentary questions are available on the Parliament’s website, the search facility for which can be found at
