Information about hospital waiting times

The information shown is only to be used as a guide. The data cannot tell you where you are on the waiting list. Its aim is to help you better understand how long people are waiting for services provided by each Local Health Board. It is important to bear in mind:

  • Everyone is an individual and your care is managed based on your clinical urgency.
  • Patients with more urgent clinical needs will have shorter waiting times.
  • There are national waiting times targets. Waiting times will be different by specialty and location and the NHS is working to make these better over time.
  • Cancer waiting times can be found on the Suspected cancer pathway waiting times interactive dashboard.
  • Waiting times for English hospitals can be found at

It is important that you are supported to keep yourself well whilst you wait. You can visit the Live Well and Health A-Z pages of this website. Your local health board’s website may have further information and help if available.

The waiting time information shown is not live data but is based on an end of month snapshot. Specialties with less than 200 patient pathways waiting will not be reported.
