This release includes new information on median waiting times and stage of pathway. For accuracy we have also amended references from patients to patient pathways since a patient can be on multiple pathways. We welcome feedback on these new additions plus any further analysis that would be of interest, as we plan to continue improving the contextual analysis in future quarters.
