NHS GP referrals for first out-patient appointments
A monthly report showing data by local health board.
- The number of GP referrals for a first outpatient appointment received at a Welsh Local Health Board was 54,946 in August 2014. There tends to be between 60 and 70 thousand GP referrals per month in Wales. This month was the first time it dropped below 60 thousand since December 2013.
- This is a 21.5 per cent decrease compared with July 2014 and a 10.2 per cent decrease compared to August 2013 at an all Wales level. It should be noted that there were less working days in August 2014 than July 2014 (20 rather than 23). However, this is a volatile series and care should be taken when interpreting short term changes.
