Consultant-led Referral to Treatment Waiting Times
At Healtwatch Enfield we are committed to monitoring the Referral to Treatment Waiting Times (RTT) waiting times for all departments at our local hospitals. We monitor the published RTT data for both the North Middlesex University Hospital Trust (NMUH) and the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust (RFH) on a monthly basis, highlighting any concerns with the relevant providers and/or commissioners.
Please note, that as explained in the RTT Information Sheet, our data does not include BCFH RTT data pre-RFH transition as BCFH did not publish RTT data from 2013 because of technical difficulties in doing so. Following the transition, the RFH resumed reporting RTT data for Barnet and Chase Farm Hospital's in their May 2015 data (published in July 2015). More information can be found on our information sheet.
We wrote to the Chief Executive of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust following publication of this data, asking a number of specific questions regarding waiting times and communication with patients. A copy of our letter and the response we recieved can be found on our news page and can be downloaded below.
We publish an infographic summarising the RTT data for RFH and NMUH which can be viewed and downloaded below.
Previous years data is available here.
