A monthly report showing data by local health board.

Key points

  • The number of GP referrals for a first outpatient appointment received at a Welsh Local Health Board was 64,386 in May 2014. There tends to be between 60 and 70 thousand GP referrals per month in Wales.
  • This is a 1.7 per cent increase compared with April 2014 and an 8.4 per cent decrease compared to May 2013 at an all Wales level. However, this is a volatile series and care should be taken when interpreting short term changes.
