Notes:

1. The figures show the median waiting times for patients waiting for admission at the end of each period.

2. These are calculated from aggregate data, rather than patient level data, and therefore are only estimates of the position on average waits.

3. Specialties where the total number waiting is less than 20 have been excluded as medians calculated from these figures would be prone to fluctuation due to small numbers. This is why there are some gaps of information.

4. Figures by specialty not collected after September 2007.
