The information is not available in the format requested. The number of finished admissions episodes (FAEs) and mean and median time waited (days) for North West London Hospitals NHS Trust for hernia repair procedures during 2010-11 is shown in the following table. Data for 2011-12 are not yet available and will be published in due course.

  Number
Total FAEs 790
Mean time waited (days) 71.7
Median time waited (days) 70
Notes: 1. A finished admission episode (FAE) is the first period of in-patient; care under one consultant within one health care provider. FAEs are counted against the year in which the admission episode finishes. Admissions do not represent the number of in-patients, as a person may have more than one admission within the year. 2. Time waited (days) statistics from hospital episode statistics (HES) are not the same as published referral to treatment (RTT) time waited statistics. HES provides counts and time waited for all patients between decision to admit and admission to hospital within a given period. Published RTT waiting statistics measure the time waited between referral and start of treatment. Source: Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), Health and Social Care Information Centre
