NHS waiting times monitoring reports

On 26 April 2022, the Welsh Government published a plan for transforming and modernising planned care and reducing waiting lists. 

The Welsh Government’s plan includes five key ambitions for reducing waiting lists. The Health and Social Care Committee is monitoring progress towards the ambitions, and has agreed to publish termly monitoring reports:


>>> NHS waiting times – monitoring report (October 2022)

>>> NHS waiting times – monitoring report (February 2023)



In 2022, the Committee held an inquiry into the impact of the NHS waiting times backlog on people in Wales who are waiting for diagnosis or treatment. More information about the inquiry, including the report and recommendations and the Welsh Government’s response, is available on the inquiry page.
