    RCS urges NHS England to ban minimum waiting times as Lincolnshire patients face mandatory three-month wait for planned surgery

    The Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) has called on NHS England to stop clinical commissioning groups from imposing minimum waiting times. A freedom of information request by the RCS found that certain patients in Lincolnshire must wait at least three months for non-urgent surgery under minimum waiting times rules imposed at some hospitals. Surgeons are concerned that minimum waiting times will leave patients waiting in pain and discomfort for an unnecessarily long time and make it difficult for health providers to meet the Government’s 18-week target for planned surgery.
