NHS cancer waiting times, November 2012
Statistics on cancer waiting times include data for Welsh Local Health Boards (LHBs) for the month ending November 2012. The latest release updates the quarterly statistics previously released on 20 December 2012.
The key points for month ending November 2012 are:
- 85.3 per cent of patients (412 out of 483) 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. However, it fell below 90 per cent in the quarters ending June and September 2012.
- 98.0 per cent of patients (867 out of 885) 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, fluctuating around 98 and 99 per cent since quarter ending September 2007 and generally meeting the target.
- 4 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. None 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 November 2012 are provisional. Note that there are small numbers in the monthly statistics; therefore care should be taken when interpreting percentages.
