The Total Time in the A&E
Department indicator looks at all attendances to the Emergency
Department and measures the time between when the patient first
arrived and the time the patient was either admitted, transferred
or discharged, i.e. the total time spent in the A&E
department. The target for the Total Time in the A&E
Department is that 95% of attendances to the Emergency Department
should spend 240 minutes (4 hours) or less in the department in
total.risk associated with the time that a patient spends
unassessed in the A&E department.
