It is a total of all periods that a PATIENT has been suspended, plus the effect in days if a PATIENT has self-deferred, for PATIENTS on an ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST.
When a PATIENT has been transferred between providers, this is the total number of days that the PATIENT was excluded from the ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST at previous provider(s) as well as with the current provider.
Please note: if a PATIENT is offered a date of admission but does not turn up and gives no advanced warning, then their waiting time is re-set from the admission date which the PATIENT failed to attend. Therefore, any WAITING PERIOD EXCLUSIONS from before the re-set waiting time date will be annulled, and should not be used for any further waiting time calculations..
