Subject:       Infected toenail 

    

 

Request:

I would like to ascertain the number of people who attended Bolton Hospital A&E department of an ingrowing/ infected toenail in the last 12 months or recorded 12 month period.

I would also like to know the current waiting time for NHS nail surgery from the Podiatry department.

 

 

Response:

We cannot identify patients who attended Bolton Hospital A&E department for ingrowing/ infected toenail as this is not coded.

Regarding waiting time for NHS nail surgery from the Podiatry department.  This is a outpatients clinic and again outpatients activity does not include procedure/name codes.
