Audiology waiting time - direct access (ADWT)

This collection holds data on the number of referral to treatment (RTT) completed pathways and incomplete pathways for Direct Access Audiology (DAA).

ADWT collection paused

We are pausing the collection and publication of this data to release NHS capacity to support the response to coronavirus (COVID-19). Find more information including a full list of collections and releases affected on the NHS England website under the heading COVID-19 and the production of statistics.



Background to the collection

This collection covers all patients referred to a direct access audiology service that is a service not led by a medical or surgical consultant regardless of where that service is provided. Patients referred to consultant-led audiology services are already on a referral to treatment (RTT) pathway for consultant-led elective care and are therefore not included in this collection. NHS England publishes these data each month.
