Delayed Transfers of Care Data 2016-17

The Monthly Situation Report collects data on the number of patients delayed on the last Thursday of each month and the total delayed days during the month for all patients delayed throughout the month.

Data are shown at provider organisation level, from NHS Trusts, NHS Foundation Trusts and Primary Care Trusts.

Data are also shown by Local Authority that is responsible for each patient delayed.

Data is split by the agency responsible for delay (NHS, Social Services or both), type of care that the patient receives (acute or non-acute) and reason for delay.

The latest publication of this data was for delays occurring in January 2017 and was published on 9th March 2017. The date of the next publication will be 13th April 2017.

Further information for this collection, including the guidance document, can be found here
