Monthly data on the transfer of NHS patients to a more appropriate care setting.
Changes to how we publish
To achieve more coherence, from April we are planning to start to publish all of our monthly NHS activity statistics on a single day each month. All of the existing data will still be available monthly through StatsWales and we will produce an overarching commentary. To allow you to explore the data better and to see it in one place, we will also be making available an online tool. Please see the Chief Statistician’s update (external link) for more information.
