CANCER patients are still waiting as long as a year to get life-saving hospital treatment, despite ministers' claims waiting time targets are being met.
Scotland on Sunday has obtained official hospital by hospital data, unpublished by the Scottish Government, which shows that for certain types of cancer, patients in some units are waiting an average of 100 days before getting treated.
In the most extreme case, an Edinburgh patient with urological cancer – likely kidney, testicular or prostate – had to wait 375 days after first seeing the GP before getting treatment.
THEIR GOAL WAS 62 DAYS, AND THEY'RE NOT MEETING THAT GOAL.
IMAGINE: YOU'VE GOT CANCER AND YOU HAVE TO WAIT 375 DAYS TREATMENT.
OBAMACARE WILL DO THAT HERE.
YES IT WILL.
THE NHS IS ONE OF THE THE OLDEST STATE RUN HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS IN THE WORLD.
IF THE POLITICIANS CAN'T MANAGE IT THERE, THEN WHAT MAKES YOU THINK OUR BUREAUCRATIC NEOPHYTES - AND THE CROOKS IN THE SEIU AND ACORN - WILL MANAGE IT BETTER HERE!?!?
AND GET AMMO.
AND VOTE GOP.
