Consultant-led Referral to Treatment Waiting Times Data 2016-17

Click here to return to main RTT page

  • If you are interested in England level or regional waiting times please use the “Commissioner Data” files.
  • If you are interested in waiting times at provider trusts then please use the “Provider Data” files.

  • Incomplete pathways are waiting times for patients waiting to start treatment at the end of the month.
  • Admitted pathways are waiting times (time waited) for patients whose treatment started during the month and involved admission to hospital (until September 2015 adjustments were made to admitted pathways for clock pauses, where a patient had declined reasonable offers of admission and chose to wait longer).
  • Non-admitted pathways are waiting times (time waited) for patients whose treatment started during the month and did not involve admission to hospital.
  • Incomplete pathways with a decision to admit for treatment are waiting times for patients waiting to start treatment at the end of the month where a clinical decision to admit to a hospital bed for treatment has been made.
  • New RTT periods are the number of new RTT pathways where the clock start date is within the reporting month.

Revisions are published periodically (usually every six months) in line with NHS England Analytical Service team’s revisions policy.

December 2016

Note: corrected versions of the incomplete provider and commissioner files for Dec 2016 were published on 9 March 2017. The correction affects East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust; the total number of ‘52+ week’ pathways was reduced by one and the number of ‘>0-1 week’ pathways increased by one. This amendment was submitted by the trust within the relevant data submission deadlines but was not reflected in the data files published on the NHS England website on 9 February 2017. The change does not impact on any other Dec 2016 files.
