The NTPF currently collects and collates information in respect of the Inpatient, Day Case, Planned Procedure (IDPP*) and Outpatient (OP) Waiting Lists.
We publish numbers in the following categories:
The Planned Procedure list comprises those patients who have had treatment and require additional treatment at a future date (e.g. a patient who has had a scope may require surveillance monitoring scopes in the future). Patients on the Planned Procedure list are assigned indicative dates for treatment. These indicative dates are determined by the clinician and treatment before these dates would not be appropriate.
* For more information please see the National IDPP Waiting List Management Protocol
The Outpatient Waiting List includes patients with a scheduled appointment date for their consultation, and those awaiting an appointment date.
Numbers are published here each month and cover the period Dec 2014 to date.
