Data on the transfer of NHS patients to a more appropriate care setting.

Key points

  • Over the longer term, there has been a reduction in the number of delayed transfers of care, mainly due to falls in mental health ward delays. The number of delays in 2017-18 are at similar levels to those seen in 2016-17.
  • Betsi Cadwaladr, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg and Aneurin Bevan had the highest number of delays in most months of 2017-18.
  • Abertawe Bro Morgannwg and Aneurin Bevan had the highest rates per 10,000 population aged over 75 in 2017-18; historically Cardiff and Vale and Cwm Taf had higher rates but they have reduced in recent years.
