A monthly report summarising data on activity and performance in the Welsh NHS. It includes the latest available monthly information for May and June 2019 plus a summary of long term trends.
This month’s figures for A&E include only the high level information by hospital site. Due to technical issues with the processing and validation of the data in NWIS, some of the more detailed information could not be included this month. This includes attendances by age, median time spent in the department, and the outcome of attendance. We have also not been able to process any historical revisions. As the processing and validation has been carried out in a different way, the figures we have published may be revised once the usual processing has resumed. We expect that this will be next month.
Average daily A&E attendances decreased in June. 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 also decreased.
The average number of daily calls to the ambulance service remained the same as in May 2019. The percentage of red calls receiving an emergency response within 8 minutes met the target and was higher than in May 2019.
The average emergency call response time for ambulances decreased in June.
The number of delayed transfers of care increased in June.
The number of patients waiting longer than the target time for diagnostic and therapy tests increased in May but the average waits decreased for both.
Referral to treatment performance declined with a decrease in the percentage of patients waiting less than 26 weeks and an increase in the number of patients waiting longer than 36 weeks. The average wait also increased.
The percentage of patients starting treatment within the target time for cancer decreased for patients on the urgent pathway and increased slightly for patients on the not urgent pathway.
Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) performance improved.
