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 64,319 in September 2014. There tends to be between 60 and 70 thousand GP referrals per month in Wales.
  • This is a 15.4 per cent increase compared with August 2014 and at the same percentage as September 2013. However, this is a volatile series and care should be taken when interpreting short term changes.
