Official Statistics

Emergency Department Activity and Waiting Times, Week Ending 24th May 2015

A new weekly publication which will provide National, Board and Site information on activity and waiting times for the 32 Emergency Departments in Scotland that provide a 24 hour emergency medicine consultant led service. Information will be provided on waits of at least 4 hours, 8 hours and 12 hours. This is an Official Statistics publication and will complement the monthly publication on the same topic produced by Information Services Division. This weekly publication will be subject to some basic quality assurance work by statisticians in Scottish Government, but users should consider the information as provisional. The definitive statement on waiting times (covering Emergency Departments and Minor Injury Units) will continue to be the Official Statistics produced by ISD.
