Delayed Transfers of Care Information

The responsibility for publishing these statistics has transferred to the NHS Commissioning Board. From the 1st April 2013 these statistics will be found here:


The Monthly Situation Report collects data on the number of patients delayed on the last Thursday of each month and the total delayed days during the month for all patients delayed throughout the month.

Data are shown at provider organisation level, from NHS Trusts, NHS Foundation Trusts and Primary Care Trusts.

Data are also shown by Local Authority that is responsible for each patient delayed

Data is split by the agency responsible for delay (NHS, Social Services or both), type of Care that the patient receives (acute or non-acute) and reason for delay.

Data for this collection is available back to August 2010.
