Waiting Lists

 

CUH has both Out-Patient and In-Patient waiting lists.  When a patient is referred to a consultant for an opinion they are either issued with an out-patient appointment directly or placed on an Out-Patients Waiting List to be given an appointment at a future date. Patients placed on waiting lists are given appointments either on the basis of medical priority or the patients longest on the waiting lists are given appointments first.

In relation to In-Patient Waiting Lists once a patient is seen at a clinic and a consultant decides he/she needs to be admitted, either for overnight or day case treatment, their name is placed on a waiting list and again given admission dates directly where possible or else to be given an admission date at a future date on the basis of medical priority and length of time on waiting list.

 

CUH Inpatient/Day Case Waiting List

The National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) has been responsible for the collection, collation and publication of Inpatient and Day Case waiting lists since 2005. It does this through the PTR (Patient Treatment Register).

These reports show the total numbers waiting, across the various timebands, for Inpatient and Daycase treatment in each Hospital. Each report lists the numbers waiting per Specialty in that particular hospital. The information is presented in different report formats, i.e. by National/Trend, by Hospital/Group, and by Specialty; click on the Hospital/Group Tab and scroll to Cork University Hospital Inpatient/Day Case Waiting Lists

 

CUH Outpatient Waiting List

Outpatient waiting list information has been collected and published by the National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) since 2013. The data represents those waiting for a first appointment at a consultant-led Outpatient clinic.
