Our latest waiting time data (November 2015) shows the average waiting time for patients between referral and their first appointment, or the percentage of patients seen within the target waiting time.
We recognise that the period between receiving a referral and seeing one of our healthcare professionals can be a worrying time for patients. Our services continuously monitor waiting time data and work to improve their performance to keep waiting times to a minimum.
