Winter Reporting 2018-19
This winter, weekly updates will commence on Thursday 13 December and will continue through to the end of February 2019. 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 continuing to publish these figures, including A&E closures and diverts, bed availability and occupancy rates, long stay patients and ambulance handover delays. Also weekly NHS 111 indicators are being published alongside the trust data. As per last year, A&E performance will be published on a faster track than other performance indicators, published two weeks in arrears rather than six.
This page contains management data which has been collected on a rapid turn-round basis from the NHS. The speed of the collection only permits minimal validation to be undertaken but the data is considered ‘fit-for-purpose’.
The guidance for this collection is available here
