Average waiting times data for a PET-CT scan is not available in the format requested.

NHS England publishes monthly data on diagnostic waiting times which includes the volume of patients waiting for a diagnostic test each month, including a CT scan. This data is available nationally as well as at clinical commissioning group and trust level at the following link:
