This morning, NHS England released the official monthly performance data for December. Here we present some highlights, including continuing problems meeting A&E targets and a slight fall in the number of patients experiencing delayed transfers of care. For interactive charts and analysis on the development of these measures over time, please explore our indicators.

The Nuffield Trust has issued a statement on the data which can be read here. The Health Foundation has also commented on the data here.
