General description

This table provides the current data on referral to treatment waiting times for closed patient pathways.

Closed pathways include: patient pathways treated, patient pathways who no longer wanted to be seen, deceased patient pathways. This excludes closed patient pathways with unknown treatment start date.

Hywel Dda health board has no patients waiting for audiological medicine from January 2019 onwards, this is due to the service moving into the community based model.

Statistical quality

Please find this information in the related statistical release, as per the given weblink.

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 a reduction in the numbers for closed pathways in the month of April 2020 and subsequent months.

Cwm Taf were unable to submit closed pathways data since August 2018. Therefore the Wales total prior to August 2018 are not comparable with later months. See the latest release for more information.
