Quarterly Diagnostic Waiting Times

Background

The quarterly diagnostics census collects data on patients waiting over 6 weeks for a diagnostic test. Unlike the monthly data, the quarterly census includes patients waiting over 6 weeks for all diagnostic tests and not just the key 15 tests. Data is collected from NHS Trusts and independent sector providers treating NHS patients. Data for this collection is available back to Feb-06.
