General description


The data in this table is sourced from the PP0W1 data collection form.
It has been identified that the definitions and methods for data collection used in PP01W are outdated and no longer fit for purpose.
It is therefore planned that no data will be published from this data collection following the September 2020 reporting period, in the November 2020 statistical release. The data collection itself may cease subject to an impact assessment by NWIS.

This table provides the current data on full waiting lists for inpatients and outpatients.
Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS): Following recent issues with the CAMHS data, we are publishing interim management information. This data has not been through the data standards process, but assurances have been given from health boards that the data accurately reflects the numbers of patients waiting for treatment by specialist CAMHS teams. Data for Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCU) are not available at present. Please see the release for more information. Detailed breakdowns are provided on spreadsheets here: https://statswales.gov.wales/Catalogue/Health-and-Social-Care/NHS-Hospital-Waiting-Times/Inpatient-and-Outpatient-Waiting-Times-for-Non-RTT-Specialties
