NHS Wales Activity and Performance Statistics Response July 2017

Vanessa Young, Director of the Welsh NHS Confederation

Vanessa Young, Director of the Welsh NHS Confederation said: 

“Staff working in the NHS and social care across Wales continue to rise to the challenge and meet targets head on in extremely difficult times of austerity and demand pressures while delivering the best possible care and services.

“This month’s statistics although mixed, show some positive results including waiting times over 12 hours for unscheduled care falling since the previous month and at the same point last year. The positive trend for emergency response times continued in June being well above the target for the 15th consecutive month. 

“However, starting treatment times for cancer, unscheduled care, treatment referrals and diagnostics waiting times are still critical areas that remain a key focus for our members. In the summer of 1948, Nye Bevan set out a vision for the NHS, now 69 year later staff remain committed to delivering the founding principles of that vision, working with individuals receiving NHS care and services as equal partners for a sustainable NHS for the future.”
