NHS GP referrals for first out-patient appointments
Key points, January 2015
Release date: 4 March 2015
- The number of GP referrals for a first outpatient appointment received at a Welsh Local Health Board was 63,918 in January 2015. There tends to be between 60 and 70 thousand GP referrals per month in Wales.
- This is a 5.7 per cent increase compared with December 2014 but a 9.2 per cent decrease on January 2014. However, this is a volatile series and care should be taken when interpreting short term changes.
Analysis of the outpatient referral dataset
Release date: 24 February 2015
The current report on referrals for outpatient appointments includes those patients who were referred by a GP. We plan to extend this publication to include other sources of referrals for outpatient appointments.
This statistical article describes the impact of including other sources of referrals; and identifies patterns and trends within the data. It also outlines the steps we plan to take with publishing outpatient referrals data in future.
