Winter Reporting 2017-18
We are continuing our system of additional winter monitoring which we launched in the winter of 2015-16.
This winter, weekly operational updates were issued from December and will continue through to the end of February 2018. They will be posted on Thursdays at 9.30am to coincide with the monthly performance reports once a month.
A daily return is being collected from acute trusts and we are publishing more data than in previous winters, including A&E closures and diverts, bed availability and occupancy rates, and ambulance handover delays. Also weekly NHS 111 indicators are being published. As now, A&E performance will be published on a faster track than other performance indicators, published two weeks in arrears rather than six.
