General description
This table provides the current data on referral to treatment waiting times for patient pathways waiting (open pathway) to start treatment by grouped weeks.

In March 2016, we changed some of the terminology used in referral to treatment reporting. Previously, when publishing these statistics, we used the terminology ‘patients’. However, some users misinterpreted this as unique patients. It is possible that a person could be on a number of different lists waiting for different conditions – i.e. there would be one patient but more than one pathway. Due to the RTT dataset being an aggregate data collection we’re not able to measure the number of unique patients. Therefore, we are using the terminology ‘patient pathways’, to better reflect the fact that one person can be on multiple waiting lists. The methodology use to measure and calculate these statistics has not changed. This is also more consistent with the other nations of the UK in their reporting of RTT.

From April 2016, there has been a change in the treatment function codes submitted by the local health boards.

Prior to February 2017, rheumatology data for Betsi Cadwaladr has been over reported due to the fact that they erroneously included DEXA scans in the data they submitted. From February 2017 onwards the data submitted by the health board is correct. The health board is currently investigating whether it will be possible to resubmit their historic data excluding DEXA scans, as these are not reportable under RTT.

December 2011 to February 2012 figures for Aneurin Bevan for those waiting to start treatment and those treated, as well as March 2012 figures for those treated, are estimated using their data for November 2011. Also, the data since April 2012 for those treated is not fully validated. This is following the implementation of a new Patient Administration System at the end of 2011.
October 2015 figures for the specialities Allied Health Professionals and Diagnostic Services for the Cwm Taf University LHB could not be accurately provided. Therefore, figures for September 2015 have been used as estimates.
April 2017 figures for the specialities Allied Health Professionals and Diagnostic Services for the Cwm Taf University LHB could not be accurately provided. Therefore, figures for March 2017 have been used as estimates.
Prior to February 2017, rheumatology data for Betsi Cadwaladr has been over reported due to the fact that they erroneously included DEXA scans in the data they submitted, which are not reportable under RTT. From February 2017 onwards the data submitted by the health board is correct.
