If you are waiting for a hospital appointment, operation or treatment you are able to access the national My Planned Care Patient Digital Platform.
The United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust – My Planned Care NHS website gives you direct access to the latest average waiting times for United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
We would encourage you to take a look at the waiting times to see an average waiting time for any elective procedures you are waiting for in a particular speciality.
Updated weekly, the site is easy to use and is available to everyone, so carers, friends, relatives, and your supporting healthcare teams can also access this information.
Please be aware that none of these wait times are for patients who are undergoing diagnosis or treatments for cancer.
The times offer an overall average per specialism and do not reflect an absolute wait time for your given appointment or procedure. Specific times will be shared with you via your consultant and booking team when you receive an appointment.
* The current average used by the My Planned Care platform is a mean (found by adding all waiting times and then dividing by the number of patients).
Of the various types of statistical averages, the mean is most affected by extreme values. Some patients who have more than one condition that might affect their treatment may have a longer waiting time than other patients with fewer healthcare issues, this will likely result in a longer average waiting time being shown in the My Planned Care platform.
We expect there to be variation in waiting times for individual patients due to range of factors, patients are being managed in clinical priority and therefore waiting times can vary depending on clinical urgency.
