How long will I wait for a hospital appointment?

The interactive list at the bottom of this page can help you understand how long you are likely to wait for an appointment or treatment at our local hospitals.

Reported waiting times are the 90th percentile reported waits for each hospital provider.  This means that 9 out of 10 patients are seen within the reported timeframe.
