Waiting times for surgery

Elective surgery waiting times: by specialty of surgeon

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 area of clinical expertise held by the doctor performing the elective surgery (specialty of surgeon).
