We report on the total waiting time in our A&E departments and urgent care centres, measured from the time of arrival and registration on the hospital information system to the time that the patient leaves to return home or to be admitted to a ward bed (including the A&E department observation beds).

Weekly A&E performance

The national accident and emergency waiting time standard requires us to ensure at least 95 per cent of patients are discharged or admitted within four hours. While the standard is for all types of patients, we breakdown our performance by hospital site and patient type.
