General description
1. Situation Reporting system (SITREPS) was introduced in December 2000 and data is submitted by NHS Trusts in Wales. It is a "real time" data collection and reporting system which involves the collection of key indicators to help determine the extent of emergency pressures on NHS organisations and their performance against key targets. These include information about the length of time patients wait in hospital emergency care facilities, the subject of this table. A review of SITREPS in early 2006 resulted in the issue to NHS Trusts of a revised set of indicators and guidance for reporting. These changes were implemented from mid-May 2006. Therefore to present a consistent time series this table includes information from June 2006 onwards.
2. The figures in this table represent the total time spent in a hospital emergency care facility from arrival until admission, transfer or discharge. They do not include planned follow-up attendances agreed or requested by a clinician.
3. The figures in this table relate to all patients, including paediatric patients. A paediatric patient is defined as a patient up to and including the age of 16 years.
4. Where a patient is transferred from A&E to an interface facility, the clock on the time spent in A&E departments only stops if the environment in that facility meets the minimum criteria (detailed below). Where the criteria is not met, the facility is considered to be an extension of the A&E department and is subject to the waiting time target. Interface facilities, which can include observation wards, medical/surgical assessment wards, clinical decision units, short stay admission wards etc, constitutes a ward only when the patient has:the same privacy and dignity as other inpatient wards in the hospital; access to toilet and washing facilities; no staff or public thoroughfare through the area; facilities to securely store their belongings; sufficient space between beds to allow visitors to be seated in comfort; provision of hot meals and appropriate access.
