Care Waiting Lists

A survey of more than 4,000 people aged 65 and over who had used health or social care services in the previous 6 months showed that over 1 in 5 people (22%) said they were currently on a waiting list for healthcare services like diagnostic tests, mental health services, consultant appointments, an operation or a therapeutic service such as physiotherapy.

More than a third (37%) on a health waiting list did not feel well supported by health and care services. Two in 5 (41%) said their ability to carry out day-to-day activities had got worse while they were waiting.
