Emergency Department Weekly Activity and Waiting Times in Scotland: Week ending 10/05/2015

This report contains weekly activity and waiting times statistics for the 32 Emergency Departments in Scotland which provide a 24 hour emergency medicine consultant led service.


1. Introduction

This report contains weekly activity and waiting times statistics for the 32 Emergency Departments in Scotland which provide a 24 hour emergency medicine consultant led service.

Over 80% of NHSScotland's accident and emergency activity currently takes place in these departments.

The 4 hour Accident and Emergency waiting time Standard relates to all sites that carry out accident and emergency activity in Scotland. This includes the 32 Emergency Departments as well as Minor Injuries Units (MIUs) and other facilities.

Given the exclusion of emergency activity from MIUs and other facilities from this report, users who want to compare national waiting times against the Standard should refer to the monthly Emergency Care Waiting Times report by the Information Services Division (ISD).

ISD's latest monthly publication reported that 92.2% of all accident and emergency attendances in Scotland were seen and subsequently admitted, transferred or discharged within 4 hours during March 2015.
