Waiting times for surgery

Elective surgery waiting times: by urgency category

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. The treating doctor determines how urgently surgery is needed, then assigns the patient to one of three elective surgery urgency categories – Category 1 (surgery is recommended within 30 days), Category 2 (surgery is recommended within 90 days), or Category 3 (surgery is recommended within 365 days).

This section shows the percentage of patients who received their elective surgery within the recommended time for that urgency category.
