An example of how NHS staff can display referral to treatment (RTT) data to identify and predict performance issues, and react to them in a timely way. | NHS Improvement
The RTT standard is a key performance standard indicating how trusts are delivering on a patient’s right to receive treatment within 18 weeks of being referred to a consultant-led service. A significant proportion of patients are monitored against this standard leading to a large amount of data being generated to assist teams in managing their services to deliver this standard.
It is important that RTT data is presented in a user friendly way to enable it to be utilised effectively. Clearly presented data can help teams to identify and predict performance issues, and react to them in a timely way.
This example dashboard illustrates how RTT data can be presented to show trends and support effective monitoring of performance.
This is not a comprehensive suite of reports but presents a minimum set of key indicators to describe RTT performance and highlight potential issues.
