NHS Border's met the four hour A&E target with 95.5% Credit: PA

New figures show that 95.5% of patients in NHS Border’s emergency departments were seen, admitted or discharged within four hours. This beats the Scottish Government’s target of 95%.

Scotland has had the best performing emergency departments in the UK for 28 months now, which is testament to the hard work of our NHS and social care workers. We will always value the vital work done by our NHS staff – and we should always celebrate their success and continue to support their efforts.”
