General description

Data is published for the number of: calls offered, answered and abandoned for the NHS 111 service in Wales.
The total number of ‘offered’ calls made to the 111 service during the month is the sum of the number of: answered and abandoned calls. A call is classed as 'offered' as soon as the call connects to the service's telephony system.
Calls are classified as answered if the call was answered by a 111 call handler. Calls are classified as ‘abandoned’ if the caller hung up before the call was answered by an 111 call handler after the pre-recorded message (or after the initial 30 seconds if there is no pre-recorded message)
Data is also published for the number of calls made to the 111 service during the month where the caller indicated that they wished to conduct the call in Welsh.

Users, uses and context

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic Welsh Government published data on calls to NHS Direct. Over the course of several years NHS Direct was phased out across health boards and replaced by the 111 service. As data was no longer consistent across Wales publication of the stats released ceased. As of mid-March all health boards had implemented the 111 system, so publication of a new statistical series was possible. The first time period which data is available for is April 2022.
During the COVID-19 pandemic WAST supplied management information on calls to NHS Direct and 111 so that the service could be monitored.
