Waiting times for surgery

Elective surgery waiting times: by intended procedure

Elective surgery is planned surgery that can be booked in advance as a result of a specialist clinical assessment resulting in placement on an elective surgery waiting list. This section shows data on waiting times for elective surgery at this hospital. This is the number of days within which half of the patients (50%) were admitted for their elective surgery, from their date of placement on the waiting list. Data are presented by the intended procedure – which is the procedure for which a patient has been placed on the elective surgery waiting list.

In 2016–17 the list of 15 ‘Indicator procedures’ was replaced by a more extensive list of 152 ‘Intended procedures’. From 2016–17, data are presented here for the original 15 procedures and the next 10 most common procedures reported for all hospitals, except Children’s hospitals, combined. For Children’s hospitals the next 10 most common for those hospitals are presented. Data for all intended procedures are available in the Excel download.
