Emergency Department Weekly Activity and Waiting Times in Scotland

The Scottish Government has produced Official Statistics on weekly activity and waiting times for the 32 Emergency Departments in Scotland which provide a 24 hour emergency medicine consultant led service.

 

This included total attendances and waits of over 4 hours, 8 hours and 12 hours. Aggregate statistics at NHS Board and Scotland level were also shown.

 

Statistics for this collection are available from the week ending the 22nd February 2015 to the week ending 31 May 2015.

 

Please note that the production of the Weekly A&E Official Statistics series has since transferred from the Scottish Government to ISD Scotland. ISD Scotland will produce the weekly A&E Official Statistics for the week ending  7 June 2015 onwards. The information will be published on ISD’s NHS Performs website –

http://www.isdscotland.scot.nhs.uk/Products-and-Services/NHS-Performs/.

 

Both Scottish Government and ISD will continue to consult with users about the production of statistics on Accident and Emergency activity and waiting times. This will include consideration of how to incorporate information on Minor Injuries Units (MIUs) into the weekly report and how the two sources of statistics can be brought together in a way that aids understanding of the data. 

 

For statistics on activity and waiting times for all sites that provide emergency care ( the 32 Emergency Departments, Minor Injuries Units and other facilities) users are advised to refer to the monthly Emergency Department waiting Times report by the Information Services Division (ISD). Statistics are available from July 2007 onwards.
