Notional (estimated average) waiting time is the number of patients in the waiting list waiting for a particular surgery divided by the average monthly output of that particular surgery in the past 12 months.  ( e.g.  If a cluster has a waiting list of 12,000 patients waiting for total joint replacement and the average monthly output in the past 12 months is 1,000, the notional waiting time is 12 months or 1 year.)
