NHS GP referrals for first out-patient appointments
In line with the outcome of the 2014 official statistics consultation, the last monthly statistical release was on 7th October 2015. Monthly data will continue to be available on StatsWales with a summary headline. The first in a new series of quarterly statistical releases will be published on 2 December 2015.
- The number of GP referrals for a first outpatient appointment received at a Welsh Local Health Board was 71,464 in September 2015. There tends to be between 60 and 70 thousand GP referrals per month in Wales.
- This is a 15.5 per cent increase compared with August 2015 and a 1.9 per cent increase on September 2014. However, this is a volatile series and care should be taken when interpreting short term changes.
- 108,758 referrals were received for a first outpatient appointment at a Welsh Local Health Board in September 2015, an increase of 15.1 per cent compared with August 2015 (and 4.6 per cent higher on a working day basis) and a increase of 8.2 per cent compared with September 2014 (coverage was expanded in October 2014 which affects this).
- There were 156 more GP referrals per working day in September 2015 compared to August 2015.
