The monthly situation report – delayed transfers of care collects the total delayed days during the month for all patients delayed throughout the month. Data are collected at provider organisation level, from NHS trusts, NHS foundation trusts and community enterprises. Data are also shown by local authority that is responsible for each patient delayed. Data are 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.
