The Department of Health and Children introduced the Waiting List Initiative (WLI) to deal with the problem of significant numbers of patients waiting long periods of time for elective inpatient treatment in the acute hospitals. The report presents the findings of an examination that looked at how well the WLI funding was used. It also looked at impact of the WLI on the target group of long waiting patients, and at how waiting time and waiting lists were monitored and managed.
