The NHS in Wales has slipped further away from hitting its targets for the time it takes for patients to be treated in hospital, after being referred.
- It aims to have 95% of patients starting treatment within 26 weeks of referral - but, for those who began treatment in December, that only reached 82.9%
- It aims to have 100% of patients starting treatment within 36 weeks - but, for those who began treatment in December, that only reached 96.3%
- By the end of December, there were more than 36,000 patients still waiting, after more than 26 weeks, to start treatment - a larger number than at any time over the last two years
- There were more than 5,000 still waiting, after more than 36 weeks, to start treatment - the most since January 2012
