When you first open the template please go to the tab at the bottom of the page that is referenced as 'Notes'. Firstly you will need to fill in cell A4 with the name of your service and cell A6 with the country where your service is located. This will automatically populate the waits guidelines for your services.
On each tab (Active, Surveillance and Cancer) please fill in the months your information is pulled from first.
Please note that patients who have DNA’d are not technically included in the waits as they are not a breach if they DNA. The endoscopy unit policy would need to apply here, ie one strike and out? Or two and out? Also if the patient was re-booked then do not included them.
Surveillance cases MUST be reported however any planned follow up procedures eg GU follow up do not need to be reported.
