NHS Cancer Waiting Times, May 2012
Statistics on Cancer waiting times include data for Welsh Local Health Boards (LHBs) for May 2012. The latest release updates the monthly statistics previously released on 27 June 2012.
The key points for May 2012 are:
- 87.5 per cent of patients (449 out of 513) newly diagnosed with cancer via the Urgent Suspected Cancer route started definitive treatment within the target time of 62 days. Since the quarter ending September 2008, this percentage has been around the low to mid 90s at the end of each quarter. It fell below 90 per cent in the quarters ending June and September 2011, but rose to 90 per cent for the quarters ending December 2011 and March 2012.
- 98.4 per cent of patients (877 out of 891) who were newly diagnosed with cancer not via the Urgent route started definitive treatment within the target time of 31 days. The longer term trend has been fairly static, varying for each quarter around 98 and 99 per cent since the quarter ending September 2007.
- 5 of the 6 LHBs met the target that at least 98 per cent of patients newly diagnosed with cancer not via the Urgent route should start definitive treatment within 31 days. 1 of the 6 LHBs met the target that at least 95 per cent of patients newly diagnosed with cancer via the Urgent route should start definitive treatment within 62 days.
All figures relating to May 2012 are provisional. Note that there are smaller numbers in the monthly statistics, therefore care should be taken when interpreting percentages.
To access the monthly data (that contains breakdowns by LHB), please go to the StatsWales website. Please note that the data is released monthly via StatsWales on a headline page. On a quarterly basis, we produce a Statistical Release that includes the data for the previous three months, detailed commentary and information on the targets and any revisions.
We also produce a quality report that has information about the methodology, how the data (monthly and quarterly) is released, definitions, information on disclosure and details on how revisions to the data are handled.
There have been no revisions to the data for April 2012, published on the 27 June 2012.
As this is a new approach for releasing cancer waiting times’ data, we would value your feedback.
