  • 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. Referral to treatment data for October 2018 to March 2019 was revised on 11 July 2019.

Note: the incomplete commissioner file for April 2019 (published on 13 June 2019) was reloaded on 10 July 2019 as the median and 92nd percentile waiting times were truncated to two decimal places in the original version. This change does not impact any other data items or files.
