The collection is required to monitor and assess Accident and Emergency performance as set in the NHS Mandate and NHS Constitution (At least 95% of patients should be seen, treated and discharged or admitted within 4 hrs of arrival).
Data and guidance is available at the NHS England website
These statistics are used to provide information to the public and other stakeholders, to highlight where Accident and Emergency performance is an issue, and how it has changed over time. They enable commissioners and NHS England to monitor performance against the national standard.
