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.
