Have your say on proposed new waiting time standards

NHS England is inviting public comments on proposed new waiting time standards for emergency and community mental health care. 

The new standards – developed in consultation with service users, clinicians, charities and providers – would set maximum waiting times for care for children and adults: 

  • 1 hour for emergency department presentations
  • 4 hours for very urgent cases presenting to crisis teams
  • 24 hours for urgent cases presenting to crisis teams
  • 4 weeks for non-urgent cases presenting to community-based teams. 

Have your say on the proposed standards by completing this short survey by 1 September. You can also email your comments to: England.reviewofstandards@nhs.net
