The National Booking Reporting System (NBRS) provides information by health speciality and booking status on how many patients are waiting for treatment, and also how long they have had to wait before receiving treatment.

The NBRS contains details of all booking status events involving a healthcare user who:

  • receives a priority for an elective medical or surgical service, and
  • is likely to receive publicly funded treatment.

Information is collected about the patient’s date of entry into the system, their assessed priority, and their booking status.
