NHS waiting times

Waiting lists are reported by Local Health Boards in Wales to the Welsh Government and detail all those people resident in Wales who are waiting for NHS-funded hospital treatment and how long they have been waiting.

The main focus of the NHS in Wales is on Referral to Treatment Times. This is the total time waited from referral by a GP or other medical practitioner for hospital treatment in the NHS in Wales and includes time spent waiting for outpatient appointments, diagnostic tests, therapy services and inpatient or day-case admissions.
