Question ref. S6W-03052
Asked by: Tess White, North East Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 16 September 2021
To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide data on non-attendances for child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) in NHS Grampian between April and June 2021.
Current status: Answered by Kevin Stewart on 23 September 2021
In their most recent CAMHS Waiting Times Data Quality Report, Public Health Scotland published that NHS Grampian are experiencing challenges reporting on “did not attend appointment” (DNA) due to the functionality of their current patient management system and database. Work is ongoing to rectify this and NHS Grampian anticipate that they will be able to provide this to Public Health Scotland by the end of 2021 when they expect to have transitioned to their new patient management system.
