A monthly report summarising data on activity and performance in the Welsh NHS. It includes the latest available monthly information for June and July 2019 plus a summary of long term trends.

Revision note

The June 2019 non-RTT data has been revised on 30 August 2019. CAMHS data provided by Aneurin Bevan health board for the statistical report on 22 August 2019 was mistakenly coded under the Mental Illness speciality.

Unscheduled care

Average daily A&E attendances increased in July and were the highest on record. The percentage of patients spending less than 4 hours in A&E decreased slightly and the number of patients spending more than 12 hours in A&E increased.

The average number of daily calls to the ambulance service increased in July. The percentage of red calls receiving an emergency response within 8 minutes met the target but was below 70% for the first time since March 2018.

The average emergency call response time for ambulances increased slightly and the number of delayed transfers of care decreased in July.

Scheduled care

The number of patients waiting longer than the target time for diagnostic tests decreased in June but the number of patients waiting longer than target increased for therapy services. Average waits increased for diagnostics, but decreased for therapies.

Referral to treatment performance was mixed; a higher percentage of patients waited less than 26 weeks but more patients also waited longer than 36 weeks. The average time waiting for treatment increased slightly.

The percentage of patients starting treatment within the target time for cancer decreased for patients on both the urgent and not via the urgent cancer pathways. Experimental statistics for the single cancer pathway are also included for the first time in this release.
