Sajid Javid – 2021 Comments on Tackling Waiting Lists

The comments made by Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 8 November 2021.

Today’s multi-million pound investment will play a big role in levelling up diagnostics services across the country so patients can get faster results and healthcare professionals can get their job done more easily, reducing unnecessary administrative burden and making every taxpayer’s pound count.

Getting a faster diagnosis for a health condition is the first step to getting more people the treatment they need and earlier on, and our funding will help ensure our NHS has access to the latest digital technology to drive up efficiency.
