The COVID 19 pandemic has meant that there are more people waiting for an operation. This means that some people are waiting a long time for a hospital appointment or for treatment.
We know that it can be very difficult for many people who are waiting.
The NHS is working hard to see people as quickly as possible, but it is going to take a while before waiting times are back down to where they were before the COVID-19 pandemic began in the UK in early 2020.
My Planned Care gives you advice and support while you wait and helps you to prepare for your hospital consultation, treatment, or surgery. This includes giving you information about waiting times at your hospital and other supporting and local services while you wait.
This site is updated weekly and can be viewed by anyone, which means you, your family or carer as well as your NHS team can all see the latest information.
More information and guidance is available for patients waiting for a hospital consultation, treatment or surgery.
