THE average wait time for surgery in Andalucia’s hospitals stands at 57 days, six days below the national average.
Furthermore, patients wait an average of 48 days for a first visit with a specialist, a healthy four days below Spain’s standard, according to the regional health service.
Despite surgical waiting lists in Malaga province clocking in at some of the longest in Andalucia with 62 days lags, they also undercut the national average.
Furthermore, the Ministry of Health revealed that the typical nationwide wait has fallen by eight days over 12 months and is now 63 days.
An NHS survey last year documented that the average wait for patients in the UK is 8.6 weeks, approximately 60 days.
