Of 35 people waiting to have their wisdom teeth removed in the Western Trust in December 2014, less than five had been waiting longer than twenty-six weeks.

Nine people had been waiting between 13 and 21 weeks. The largest number of patients waiting, in weeks, for inpatient treatment for wisdom tooth removal at December 31, were waiting less than six weeks. No-one had been waiting between 21 and 26 weeks.

The information, taken from the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPS) Inpatient Waiting Times Dataset, was provided in response to an Assembly Question.
