Surgeons being paid triple the amount to cut waiting lists

In Scotland new measures are being undertaken by the health officials to reduce the waiting list of patients who have been referred by their General Practioner. //

Hence new methods are being adopted by increasing the wages of the Surgeons three times their normal wages.

Consultants receive more than £1,500 a day from officials to cut on the waiting list. In the near future patients will receive appointments within 6 months after their reference to the respective consultant.

This money is being paid for the overtime they are working apart from their routine 40 hours/week. This has resulted in the consultants salary envelope to soar above the £100,000 mark.

Inspite of all the new measures taken up by the government statistics reveal that there are still more than 13000 patients who are on the waiting list beyond 6 months.

It has allotted new operating sessions in the last month and senior officials have earned thousands of pounds.

This has caused commotion waves among politicians as in some areas consultants were earning up to £10,000 on top of their £100,000 annual salaries.

The health officials not only have to pay for the consultants but also for the other theatre staff and the anaesthetist.

But various other officials say that in order to meet the waiting list it has to increase the size employ more people rather than spending money on the existing consultants. Many surgeons also believe the funding should be invested in long-term capacity.

Statistics show that there were 1,249 inpatients still in the waiting list for treatment. and11, 854 outpatients for an appointment with a consultant.

Apart from this 35000 patients who do not have waiting time guaranteed and are not treated for 5 years.

Health officials said that by 2007 these list of patients will be abolished and new timings will set in where patients will be treated within 18 weeks.

These new plans have raised doubts in various classes of people that there had been no planning and they don’t know whether these measures will be feasible and affordable.
