Information on the number of out-patient appointments which were recorded as cancelled in each national health service trust in London between 2008-09 and 2012-13 has been placed in the Library.

Not all NHS trusts have provided data submissions to outpatients hospital episode statistics for the period covered. In addition, some recording practice of cancellations shows some, variation.

Some providers do not record any cancellations, while others have changed recording practice in the period reported.
