Our pain can’t wait. Fix joint replacement waiting times
People with arthritis face an agonising wait for a joint replacement. We’re campaigning for urgent action to fix joint replacement waiting times and give vital hope and certainty to those struggling in pain.
Our new campaign, Right on Time, is calling for:
- The Government to keep people’s NHS guarantee to treatment within 18 weeks
- An NHS action plan to improve access to joint replacements and reduce waiting times
- Increased accountability for the NHS to deliver joint replacements
- The regular publication of waiting times for joint replacement surgery
We need urgent action from the Government.
