NHS Wales data is presented so as to conceal the performance of the major departments comparable with those elsewhere in the UK, but after some adding up and dividing, I get 56.7%, slightly better than NHS England.

For Northern Ireland, the figure is a shocking 45.2% and has been under 50% for more than a year now.
