What does the Consultant activity pie chart show?

The Consultant activity pie charts represent the total number of elective (planned) finished consultant episodes (FCEs) and non-elective (emergency) finished consultant episodes. A finished consultant episode usually represents the care of a single patient from admission to discharge.

Please note that for Consultants who provide both adult services for patients older than 17 years and paediatric services for patients 16 years old and younger there are two outcome reports.

Less than 60 evaluable procedures performed between 1st April 2014 and 31st March 2017
