WAITING TIME ADJUSTMENT REASON
The prime reason for an adjustment to waiting time for the National Cancer Waiting Times Monitoring Data Set.
Where there is more than one adjustment applicable, this should be the reason for the longest adjustment.
- Where there has been no adjustment to waiting time, National Code 'No adjustment to waiting time' should be used.
- National Code'Did Not Attend Out-Patient Appointment' is only to be used, where applicable, within WAITING TIME ADJUSTMENT REASON (FIRST SEEN).
- National Code'Patient pause' cannot be used within WAITING TIME ADJUSTMENT REASON (FIRST SEEN) as a patient pause can only be applied in relation to an OFFER OF ADMISSION for treatment.
