As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics. https://gov.wales/statistics-and-research

Data Provider: Welsh Government National Statistics Patients newly diagnosed not via the urgent suspected cancer route starting treatment by month

Following the announcement on Friday 13th of March regarding the cancellation of certain medical procedures and the relaxation of performance targets, several national data collections have been temporarily ceased and we will also temporarily stop reporting performance statistics. These changes will be in place until at least the October reporting period. Therefore the monthly StatsWales updates will now provide only a summary of activity data.

General description
The patients shown here are those treated via the non urgent route. The national target for these patients is: at least 98 per cent of patients newly diagnosed with cancer, not via the urgent route will start definitive treatment within 31 days of diagnosis (regardless of the referral route).

From 1st April 2019 health service provision for residents of Bridgend local authority moved from Abertawe Bro Morgannwg to Cwm Taf. For more information see the joint statement from Cwm Taf and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Boards (see weblinks). The health board names have changed with Cwm Taf University Health Board becoming Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board becoming Swansea Bay University Health Board.
