What does the Consultant activity pie chart show?
The Consultant activity pie charts represent the total procedures performed within elective (planned) Finished Consultant Episodes (FCEs) and non-elective (emergency) FCEs. An FCE is the time spent by a patient in the care of one consultant in one healthcare provider and there may be up to 24 procedures recorded for each FCE. The consultant level pie charts are segmented to represent the proportion of cranial, spinal, and other procedures performed and, in addition, FCEs containing no procedures.
Please note that for consultants who undertake procedures on both patients aged 18 and older and patients aged 17 and younger, there will be two further pie charts showing elective and non-elective FCEs for their paediatric practice.
