Delayed Transfers of Care Data 2015-16

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 for this year was for delays occurring in March 2016 and was published on 12th May 2016.

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