Earlier testing to improve Scottish ENT (ear nose and throat) services?:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Scotland is calling for bids to redesign its ear nose and throat (ENT) services. £3.5m ($6.3m) is being made available under an initiative led by the Centre for Change and Innovation, to fund "fresh thinking" on ways of improving ENT care delivery, particularly with the aim of cutting the long waits in outpatient clinics. The provision of diagnostic tests during the initial consultation, rather than upon further referral, was highlighted by health minister Malcolm Chisholm in today's announcement as one way of significantly improving the service. He was speaking at an ENT conference hosted by the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh.
