Cancelled Elective Operations

The Cancelled Elective Operations collection was paused in April 2020 due to the coronavirus illness (COVID-19) and the need to release capacity across the NHS to support the response. The collection will resume for Quarter 3 2021/22 data (to be published in February 2022). For further information on this and our other suspended collections, please visit this webpage.
