Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many patients in London waited for (a) 18 months and over, (b) 12 months and over and (c) six months and over for out-patient admission in each quarter of each of the last five years in each primary care trust. 
The information requested is not held centrally. The Department has not collected
information on waits of over 26 weeks for out-patients since March 2004, as the current target is only 13 weeks. However, the following table shows how many patients waited over 26 weeks for out-patient admission in each London primary care trust (PCT) from 2002 to 2004.
|Number waiting over 26 weeks for an out-patient appointment. June 2002 to March 2004, commissioner based|
|Number waiting over 26 weeks, month end:|
|Organisation||June 2002||September 2002||December 2002||March 2003||June 2003||September 2003||December 2003||March 2004|
In the financial year 2003-04 Chingford, Wanstead and Woodford PCT divided, part joined Redbridge PCT, which kept its name (and is differentiated from the old PCT using the name Redbridge PCT (new)). The other part joined Walthamstow, Leyton and Leytonshire PCT to become Waltham Forest PCT.
