NHS Waiting Times for Elective Care in Wales

The Auditor General for Wales published his report, NHS Waiting Times for Elective Care in Wales, in January 2015. This report looks at how long patients are waiting for elective care. The report does not focus on emergency care nor care related to cancer – which is subject to separate targets – although it does consider the impact of prioritising these areas for elective care.


The Public Accounts Committee considered these results with the Welsh Government in January 2017. The Committee received an update from the Welsh Government in the autumn 2017 term and received regular monitoring during the spring and summer 2018 terms.
