May-2024In May 2024, the number of anaesthetics pathways provided by Cardiff and Vale fell by around 500 compared with previous figures after it was identified that these pathways had been closed for some time. It is not possible to remove them from the back series of data to reflect when they were actually closed, meaning the figures up to April 2024 are artificially high.54.811.533.7

Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic all non-urgent outpatient appointments were suspended in March 2020. Meaning, most hospitals had to reduce or suspend the services they offered, which led to an increase in both the lengths of waits and the number of people waiting on patient pathways for the month of April 2020 and subsequent months.
