We have some of the shortest waiting times in England for NHS patients. Waiting times are even shorter for private and insured patients.
Please note that our actual waiting times may differ from those that are visible within GP practices. This is because we are supporting NHS hospitals and inherit the waiting times of long waiting patients. For example a GP may see a waiting time for 35 weeks for Cataract procedures when in fact we receive a patient who has been waiting 30 weeks and would treat them in 5 weeks. The table below informs both patients and GP’s of our average NHS waiting times so that you can make the most informed decisions where you receive your care. We are proud to maintain amongst the shortest NHS waiting times in the country.
