Time Spent in NHS Accident and Emergency Departments, July 2012
Statistics on Time Spent in NHS Wales Accident and Emergency Departments include data for Wales for the period beginning July 2011 through to July 2012. The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 26 July 2012.
The key points from the latest release are:
- 88.9 per cent of patients spent less than 4 hours from arrival until admission, transfer or discharge in July 2012, a decrease of 0.9 percentage points from June 2012.
- 97.0 per cent of patients spent less than 8 hours from arrival until admission, transfer or discharge in July 2012, an increase of 0.1 percentage points from June 2012.
- Over the last two years, performance against the targets tended to drop over the winter months and then rise until the end of the summer months.
All figures relating to July 2012 are provisional.
For the August 2012 data onwards, there will be a new approach to publishing the emergency departments waiting times data. Rather than Welsh Government publishing the data in a Statistical Release or on StatsWales, the monthly data be published by NHS Wales Informatics Service on their website as management information, around the 15th day of each month.
This approach will support the more timely release of data into the public domain. Whilst it will reduce the frequency of more formal publications of official statistics it will allow the opportunity to provide more added value through context and commentary. If you have any comments on this approach, then please let us know via the contact details below.
A wider user consultation on our statistical outputs is also planned for September 2012 and we will use this to ensure that this new approach continues to meet user needs and explore how to improve and extend this further. We will also seek your views as to how frequently we should publish these official statistics (quarterly, annually etc) in the future. For further details on the changes see the Notes page at the end of the Release or the Quality Report.
We have received resubmissions for this time series. Please see Page 6 of the release for details of how this will be dealt with. Please see StatsWales for the revised official statistics.
