  • Where N/A is displayed, data is not available.
  • Where there are no figures shown in the % change column this indicates that a value is divided by 0. This means that a calculation is not possible.
  • Figures shown in the table are rounded to one decimal place. The total ambulance ramping figure is calculated using actual numbers that contain more than one decimal place, and therefore the total figures may be slightly different to those calculated using the rounded figures in the table.
